Description
 
In 1954 Chevrolet deepened the pickup box and flattened the bed rails to add cargo capacity. To fit this to the AD chassis, the rear axle kick up was lowered and the wooden blocks previously used to mount the bed were eliminated. Otherwise, this chassis is identical to the ’47-’53 and all previous years cabs and sheetmetal, including beds, can be used. Our new construction chassis is a safe, strong, and good looking alternative to a well-worn original. Our recommended front suspension is a Heidts or TCI Mustang II IFS. A traditional axle front end, Kugel Komponents IFS or Heidts Superide IFS is also available. In the rear, we recommend parallel leaf springs which we feel provide superior ride quality for these heavy trucks, especially if you intend to put a few rod-run supplies in the back. We use a custom made spring pack which lowers the rear of the car and provides a nice hot-rod rake when combined with the IFS. To further lower the rear another 2”, we can mount these springs inboard of the frame, rather than under. A triangulated or parallel 4-bar is also an option. Be sure to let us know if you want to place your rear axle in the stock location or move it back 2” to better center the wheels in the fenders. We also manufacture front cab mounts, rear cab shackles, and a complete set of running board brackets that will complete the new look under your truck.

The following describes our 'standard' Complete Rolling Package that can be used as a starting point for planning your custom build. Each chassis is built to your specs and we can typically accommodate special requests or build features - just ask!
