The Only Choice For Classic and Muscle Car Chassis

developerChassis and Suspension, Gallery, Products, Tri-Five ChevyMay 10, 20180 Comment


Classic and Muscle Car Chassis are very important when building your car. It’s similar to building a house, you have to start off with a good foundation and the cool point is that you can now build a 50 or 60 year old classic or muscle car with 2018 geometry.

That’s why Palm Beach Customs has two of the best Chassis manufacturers as their foundation builders: Art Morriston Enterprise -AME- and Roadster Shop.

Both Art Morrison and Roadster Shop have both shown the ability to provide products that customers want. So, why do we have TWO manufacturers?

Both companies provide excellent products, but both make chassis for different cars. Also, only one manufacturer will not offer a solution for every application, so we can accommodate so many more customers with two manufacturers…..

Why buy a chassis from Palm Beach Customs?

That’s simple. We have been in business since 1980 and have plenty of experiences with many different chassis and with every other aspect of building a car.

To extend our knowledge here is some information and pictures of a few of the chassis we sell.

Protect your 1955-1956 Chevy with 4″ Steel Recessed Smoothie Firewall Upgrade

developerTri-Five ChevyMarch 1, 20180 Comment

1955-chevy steel body


What comes even before your car’s appearance and outer maintenance is your car’s protection, and your own. One of the most important protective measures that your car has installed is a firewall. A firewall is supposed to protect you against any fire or spark that might occur within the engine, as it forms a wall which protects against fire.

1955-1956 chevy

However, like every other car part, this firewall is normally prone to wearing out too, and so you might find yourself in danger, as the firewall might become less and less capable of doing its job right. For this reason, a new firewall might do more than you can think of.

1955-1956 Chevy Firewall

If you own a 1955-56 Chevy, you know that it’s pretty old, and when you are looking for parts to maintain and refurbish it, do not skip over the firewall. We at Palm Beach are proud to present to you this Firewall, compatible with the Chevy 1955-56, and actually is a part of all the 1955-56 car bodies which might be ordered from our site. This 1955-1956 Chevy firewall is a custom firewall, with 16 gauges, and comes from the Hot Rod Dynamics.

1955-1956 chevy firewall

The recess is almost 4” deep, so that it could actually fit into all engine installations which are that deep in just about any car at all, which can include installation of LS Engine and all Big Block.

Furthermore, the way the firewall has been build, with rounded corner and ultimate grace, the firewall also gives your car a very classic look, and looks perfect in all kinds of old cars, as the look compliments them a lot. Square corner firewalls, available in the markets, might not suit your car the way this one would.

1955-1956 chevy smoothie firewall

This 1955-1956 Chevy firewall shows great compatibility, and allows the use of Air Gen IV AC System, as well as Raingear Wiper System. Overall, the firewall has been made of the most high quality steel, customized in order to reach up and meet all your demands, turning out to be even better than the original firewall installed. The firewall is, no doubt, a highly productive and valuable one, and would not disappoint. Order your firewall here.

Get High-Quality 1955-57 Chevy Body Mini-Tub Option

developerTri-Five ChevyMarch 1, 20180 Comment

1955-chevy steel body


When you drive your car around a lot, one of the many parts of your car which get wear out are the tubs. These places hold your tires, and might get sprayed with all kinds of dirt and debris, while also having to face a lot of wear and tear. However, the tubs help the wheel works properly, which is why when you’re getting your car upgraded, the tubs might be an important part to consider.

chevy mini tub

We at Palm Beach are proud to be offering a mini tub option from Chevy 1955-56, which is of the highest quality possible. This is a factory installed update which might fit into any hardtop, 2-door or Sedan or a convertible body skeleton, or a customized body, and not just the Chevy.

chevy body mini tub

The Chevy mini tub works greatly to move about the stock wheel tubs which are present in board, on all the sides. With this mini tub installation, you can easily use an 11 inch wheel, and a 13” tire, particular when the Chassis spring pocket kit is being used.

On the passenger side, the measurement of the inner tub is about 16 inches, while it is something around 15.5 inches on the driver’s side. For touring and going out onto rugged, stony roads, this might turn out to be the best mini tub if you wish to upgrade a car which has worn out tubs, as this greatly increases the productivity and smoothness of your car.

1955 chevy mini tub

Apart from that, for a car for which you are updating all of the parts, you shouldn’t miss out on the tubs, as they are integral, and help your wheels in functioning properly. A high-quality Chevy mini tub update in your Chevy 1955-56 or any other Steel Body Replacement will allow you to fit your larger rims and tires in factory chassis, or upgraded Roadster Shop or Art Morrison take your pick 4 link rear or independent suspensions.
