Frame & Chassis

California Custom Roadsters, Inc., commonly known as CCR, is committed to offering the best chassis and component parts for your street rod. For over 20 years we have been building `T' bucket chassis for the street rod enthusiast. Although all 'T' chassis have similar looks and functions, there are many differences in design, quality, and strength. A close look at the details reveals the commitment we have to being the best.

CCR's chassis is completely heli-arc welded in our precision jig. The frame is much more durable than most; built from 2" x 3" x 3/16" (.1875") tubing instead of the usual 1-1/2" x 3" x 1/8" (.125) used by others. The larger tubing means your chassis will be stronger, great if you use a big block. Also, your chassis will look nicer because the corners of the larger tubing have nice round edges instead of skinny, square edges found on smaller tubing. This is important because a lot of your chassis is exposed.

All of the chassis brackets are made to blend into the chassis, not just welded on top, or on the side. For example the front perch mounts under the frame, not over, so the front of your car shows the beautiful paint job. The radius rod brackets mount under the frame, not on the side, once again for great appearance. The tie rod runs behind the axle, not way out in front, and the drag link runs parallel to the radius rods instead of criss-crossing them. The front of your `T', which is completely exposed, has a very clean, uncluttered look

The axle is out front, and everything else is cleanly placed behind it. The radius rods are made of 7/8" tubing so they are strong and solid looking. The rear panhard bar is longer to eliminate shifting from side to side on narrower frames, like the `T'. From behind, your chassis retains an elegant look. The CCR chassis' ride is complimented by not only the front spring but a pair of shocks as well. For a great look and ride, the CCR chassis is your best choice.

More Choices For You
You have more options with CCR's chassis. They are offered in four stages for your convenience. Stage I is the bare frame, Stage II is the bare frame with all the mounting brackets that need to be welded, welded in place. Stage's III and IV give you many of the chassis components, including complete front and rearends; and steering, brake, and suspension options.
