1955-1959 Chevy and 1948-1956 Ford Trucks Grounded Chassis
TCI Engineering is proud to announce the release of our new 1955-1959 Chevy and 1948-1956 Ford Trucks Grounded Chassis. The rear frame rails have been kicked up and the front crossmember has been raised in order to put the cab 1” off the ground with 26” (front) & 28” (rear) tall tires. The frame features main rails with an extended height from 6” to 8” for increased rigidity. Clearance between upper and lower x-members is maximized while still retaining the original frame profile. The center section is custom built for each chassis to match the customer specified engine and transmission. Frame rails are fixture welded with all mounting hardware installed before being fully enclosed. All edges are ground smooth to give a clean appearance.
The 4-Link bars were moved up the side of the frame to keep proper geometry at the new super low ride height. We placed the link bars and lower shock attachments outside the frame rails in order to maximize roll resistance. The tapered rear airbags provide maximum lift and travel while also being capable of higher loads and a comfortable ride.
Special attention was paid with the modified front crossmember to ensure proper geometry for comfort and performance. We used a double convoluted bag in the front to provide maximum lift and travel. An external shock and bump stop provide safety and comfort.
The complete chassis includes hand fabricated ¼” stainless air lines along with 3/16” Brake lines and hoses. Optional Ridetech Ride Control X systems and tanks are also available.
We offer chassis for cruising, autocrossing, drag racing, fully polished show-stoppers and anything else in between. We offer a wide variety of options that allow you to custom tailor a chassis to meet your specific needs. All TCI Engineering products come with our Dual Warranty. 6 Year/60,000 Mile Warranty on wear and tear plus any items built in house by TCI Engineering come with a Lifetime Warranty.
