33 Ford Coupe Chassis 1        3/09/03

The first piece for the car was the chassis (frame). I ordered it from a company called TCI (Total Cost Involved) which makes one of the best rolling chassis' on the market, if not the best. Your options are almost unlimited to what you can buy and I got most of them. I figured.....why not!! Now I wanted some big tires to fit under the rear fenders so one of the things I did was ordered the Pro Street chassis which has room for larger tires with a narrowed rear end and frame rails. The tire width I will be able to use is a 16.5". You give up trunk space by doing this but that didn't matter to me. This chassis has lots of threaded inserts already in it to bolt the body and fenders on. This is a nice feature not to mention a time saver. I had a choice to go with a straight axle or Independent Front Suspension. I went with the IFS because it should ride and handle a little better. Power booster & master cylinder are standard on this setup and is inside the frame which will be hidden under the body for a clean look in the engine compartment. It even comes with a stop light switch, brake pedal and proportional valve. Engine and trans mounts are setup for a small block Chevy and Turbo 400 trans.

 Here is a list of options that I got:

  • Stainless steel brake lines with AN fittings
  • 4 wheel disk brakes w/emergency brake
  • Front and rear Stainless steel brake hoses
  • Polished Wilwood brake calipers front & rear
  • Polished front spindles
  • Polished Stainless steel 4 link bars
  • All American Polished adjustable coil-over shocks front & rear
  • Polished Stainless steel A arms
  • Polished Stainless steel front sway-bar
  • Chromed track bar
  • Chromed rear sway-bar
  • 9" Ford rear end, 4:56 gears, Posi-Unit, 31 spline Currie axels
  • Custom frame mounts for overdrive unit
  • Lots of chrome and polished bolts, nuts and washers

As you can see I got lots of options. They call this the chrome/stainless package along with some other extras. Lets take a peak at what all this looks like.
