42 Chevy Truck Chassis

Just purchased a 42 Chevy truck... Will start building it when I return from Florida in the spring... Trying to get a head start on the big things.... I'm thinking of putting a new Art Morrison chassis under it... Anybody ever use one... Any other suggestions..

Chassis

I fully agree regarding putting a new chassis under a build. I've always said you can't build a house on shifting sands. I noticed in my latest magazine that there are several chassis builders. If you have the space and talent you can build your own chassis. Rear rails can be ordered from Art Morrison and box the front with a MII kit. Many options and no clear winner. What will you be using for drivetrain and rear suspension?
