'28 - '31 Ford Chassis
Because your chassis is the backbone of your street rod, Chassis Factory prides itself in fabricating one of the finest quality street rod frames in the industry. Our frames are uniquely fabricated from 11 gauge P&O plate. We have our pieces laser cut so we are ensured to have each piece exactly the same. Each frame rail is then formed into a "U" channel which allows us to weld the body mounting nuts inside the frame rails instead of using nut zerks that others use. With this technique, the use of 4x2 rectangular tubing that needs to be sliced and diced and welded back together again is eliminated. We then fit the pieces on our rail jigs, square them and weld. All welds are then ground and inspected to verify that they have complete penetration and no porosity. They are then sanded with 50 grit to prep it for finishing. The rails are placed into our rotisserie frame fixture and tack welded to the fixture to eliminate movement while the frame is constructed and T.I.G. welded. Sounds like a lot of work? Yes, it is, but this is the way we choose to build your quality chassis. Many options are available for your completed chassis. Below are just a few ways to order; however, please feel free to call us with any other ideas you may have. We look forward to doing business with you. Being a custom metal fabrication shop we are limited only by your imagination. Please note that our completed chassis prices include many options that other shops do not.
