1960-72 Chevy/GMC Direct Replacement Chassis

Jim Meyer Racing is proud to present their new custom, jig-built, mandrel-bent, and fabricated direct-replacement ’60-72 GM/GMC pickup chassis. The fantastic foundations offer all the street-performance options you’d ever want in either right- or left-hand drive! And they’ll build ’em your way with any step over the front or rear suspension, any tread width front or rear, or any wheelbase. These chassis feature stock cab mounts, core support mounts, and front bed mounts all in their stock locations. Plus they move the fuel tank out of the cab to the rear of the frame!

The only front and rear adjustable stance 2x4x.120-inch wall chassis in the industry features beefy 2x5-inch main framerails, a new 9-inch rearend (28-, 31-, or 35-spline and any width) with adjustable urethane-bushed four-link, Dutchman alloy axles, adjustable urethane-bushed Panhard rod, aluminum adjustable coilover shocks (front and rear) or optional remote ShockWave air spring system and an adjustable trans crossmember that comes pre-drilled for all GM and aftermarket transmissions. The standard heavy-duty chassis features a 2x4x.188-inch wall box tube, jig-built, front crossmember with 1¼-inch diameter tubular lower A-arms and 1-inch diameter tubular upper A-arms holding GM spindles with 11-inch GM brakes and balljoints to give you a 5-on-4.75 wheel bolt pattern. Optional brakes with a 5-on-5 bolt pattern are available. A Mustang manual or optional power rack-and-pinion handles the steering. The identical IFS shown in the chassis is available as a separate bolt-in unit for ’60-87 pickups. All parts are available separately. And since they build ’em your way, they’re available with any industry option you’d like from Jim Meyer Racing.
