In the Northwest back in the 1970s, there was a highly competitive drag racer in the Sportsman class named Art Morrison. A talent behind the wheel and in the shop, Art soon found it a real kick to strap into a wheelstander and see just how long he could keep half of the vehicle in the air. The rest of the Sportsman class got a break one day in the late '70s when Art gave himself a few broken bones in a serious enough wheelstander crash that Art retired from racing and turned his interests into his chassis shop full time.
It was in 1978 that he moved into the 8,000 square-foot building that Art Morrison Enterprises still occupies today-but not for long. They are building a state-of-the-art shop on five acres that will start out as a 40,000 square-foot facility with room to grow to just under 100,000 square feet! In the meantime, they are still building and shipping out the high-quality chassis they are known for.
Not only does Art Morrison Enterprises have many production parts and chassis, but they pride themselves on being able to custom design just about any chassis using their in-house engineering staff and the latest in design technology, analysis, and testing programs. If you can think it, they can make.
We had the good fortune to be in the Seattle area recently and jumped at the chance to take a walk through the shop with Art and his son Craig. Hope you enjoy it!
