AME 1949-1954 Chevrolet Chassis



Handles just like an exotic sports car and virtually bolts right in



Product Description

All it takes is a specially engineered replacement chassis from Art Morrison and it’s a project that most competent do-it yourselfers can accomplish in their own home garage.

Little or no welding is required to install this chassis. Morrison’s engineering staff went about designing a front and rear suspension package that would deliver the handling and ride that has made the original GT-Sport chassis for Tri-5 Chevys the unquestioned industry leader.



Up front, Morrison’s engineering team has developed a sophisticated Independent Front Suspension (IFS) that employs tubular steel control arms, adjustable coil-over shocks, a beefy sway bar and Wilwood front spindles. A power rack & pinion (20:1 ratio) handles the steering.


Since most builders will want to have something more potent than the original 6-cylinder “stovebolt” engine, the chassis will also have motor mounts for the popular small block V8, or the new LS-series powerplants. Likewise, a wide variety of manual and automatic transmissions can be employed, including Powerglide, TH350, TH400 and 700R4 automatics, plus any 4-speed, Tremec TKO and T-56 6-speed, as well as Richmond 5 or 6-speed manual transmissions.


The rear suspension is AME’s highly regarded triangulated 4-bar setup, which gives excellent straight-line and lateral control. Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks and a sway bar complete the package.
