Upgrade your stock 1955-1957 Chevrolet with a new Fat Man Fabrication chassis! The fabulous “Tri-Five” Chevrolets have been a favorite hot rod since they were new, and today’s builds are taken to a standard never dreamed of years ago! Any good build begins with a firm foundation, and Fat Man is proud to offer our reproduction chassis for these classics.
A superior X member design allows for 3” exhaust and is designed to handle high stress loads with a fully encapsulated center section. Main frame rails are fixture welded using 3” x 4” x .188″ material for strength far in excess of the stock chassis. All body mounts are tended to along with Chevrolet engine and transmission mounts of your choice. LSX engines fit well with a Camaro oil pan. Big blocks fit great, solving the steering box to exhaust clearance issues seen with the 605 box conversions. We can help with the correct oil pan numbers too!
Fat Man’s famous nickel plated front control arms are standard as are a power rack and pinion, front and rear sway bars, 4-wheel OE-style iron disc brakes, a new 9” rear with a 3.70 Trac-loc gearset, and rear Pro-Link suspension with premium autocross proven Ridetech adjustable billet coilovers for advanced handling. Ride quality is enhanced by designing this chassis for a longer than usual 5” stroke rear coilover which may require a minor modification to the left front of the trunk on some body styles. Stock rear wheel tubs will accept up to 10” wide wheels with this design.
(Price includes all the above as standard)
Available Upgrade Options include: Ridetech Shockwaves, Wilwood Brakes, Winters Quickchange Rear Axle, and many more combinations to make your 1955-1957 Chevrolet rolling chassis one of a kind!
We used this same 1955-1957 Chevrolet chassis for our very own 1957 Chevrolet Smokey Yunick tribute car that we built in 2010. Check out the car and additional information about the 1957 Chevrolet tribute car on our blog or head on over and visit Super Chevy magazine’s video of the car during their “Super Chevy Suspension Challenge”.
