Aftermarket Chassis in a 65 Riviera


Recommended Posts

I'd like to touch on something that I haven't seen mentioned yet, the welding on the chassis and body work as well as the bead rolled work and what I think is some wheeling machine work on the sheet metal looks phenomenal! I would bet that this thing will handle like it's on rails when it's finished.

It is, I asked the same thing and it's apparently how the Roadster Shop does it counting on the suspension being "free" enough to not need the isolation of body mounts.  

 

Personally, I think there is going to be a level of accepted NVH that the approach requires that is likely well worth the trade off for handling.
