Part 2: Chassis
The stock front horns were cut off and new horns were added. A Mustang II crossmember was then welded in place to accept aftermarket Mustang components. The small Mustang II 9" rotors were discarded for '78 Granada 11" rotors and calipers. Power rack and pinion will handle the steering.
Stock differential and leaf springs were removed. A new crossmember support for the coil-overs was welded in place directly over the shortened Dodge 8 3/4 posi differential. Art Morrison ladder bars will keep the car pointed in the right direction.
The frame has gone through a complete grind and painted 3 coats of Red Oxide primer, 3 coats of Gloss Black.
Here's the assembled front end.
Now the frame is almost complete.
Here's the car's stance without running gear and interior.
