1947-1953 Chevy Truck “GT Sport Performance” Chassis
The “GT Sport Performance” chassis features “Sport” IFS with beefy 1 5/16″ diameter upper control arms and upsized poly-bushed rod ends that combines with coil-over shocks and anti-sway bar (both adjustable) to provide exact handling.
The ride height is quite low and requires the bed floor to be raised about two inches.
It can accommodate virtually any V-8 engine/transmission (stick or automatic) combination. An optional pedal mount makes for a clean installation.
Palm Beach Customs only sells complete chassis and so you will also get the front and rear kits that come with this package:
FRONT CROSSMEMBER KIT
Designed to be “spliced” into a stock 1947-53 Chevy truck chassis, the kit consists of a front crossmember that contains steering, lower control arm and motor mounts, upper control arm/coil-over mounts, tubular upper and lower control arms, ball joints, spindles, adjustable anti-sway bar, Strange adjustable coil-over shocks, and a power rack & pinion steering.
Plates are employed to “box” the fame and support the crossmember. The assembly is CAD engineered for the application and provides contemporary handling and ride.
REAR SUSPENSION KIT
Adapting a hefty 9″ rear end housing and 4-bar rear suspension to your 1947-53 Chevy truck is easy with this superbly engineered kit from AME. It starts with a 2×6 crossmember that includes mounting brackets for the four bars (which have poly-bushed stainless steel rod ends).
A tubular cross member, with upper coil-over mounts, is attached to the frame using four brackets that also serve to reinforce the rails. The 9″ housing is made to your desired width and fitted with mounts for the coil-overs and 4-bar suspension. Strange adjustable coil-over shocks and a lateral stabilizer bar (with mount) complete the package.
