Model "A" Frame & Chassis
|You Have A Choice
CCR has veered from the norm by offering four stages of completion with their chassis. We feel these choices are better and more convenient than the usual 3 offered by most companies. From a bare frame to a frame with all welded brackets in place to a complete chassis, you can get it how you want it. Compare part by part prices and you'll see that CCR is the better value.
The model "A" chassis is available with the standard rear cross member or with a kicked-up rear for a lower look. Designed through and through for a superior look and ride feel.
STAGE I is the foundation for a great Model "A". CCR's stage I frame is completely jig welded and will fit all body styles. You have a choice between the standard rear crossmember or a kicked-up rear that gives your car a lower ride. Body and running board holes are drilled and nutserts are installed in place, so the frame is ready for the body to be mounted.
Stage III gives you almost everything needed for a complete rolling chassis. Included in the stage III are front and rear 4-link kits, steering box (not rebuilt), complete front axle and spring, rearend housing and more (see chart for your complete list).
STANDARD REAR CROSSMEMBER VS. CCR'S KICKED.UP REAR
|Street rodders have always had a flair for
speed and power, as well as a distinctive look for their
cars. If you're one of them and you're looking for a way
to drop your model "A" to the ground without
sacrificing the quality of the ride, CCR's kicked-up rear
crossmember is what you need.
The diagram to the left shows how raising the frame, lowers where the body mounts without affecting the travel of the rearend. From the diagram you can see that the kicked-up rear offers a much lower ride, about 3 inches in fact. This is done without sacrificing the quality of your suspension, so you're ride will be as nice as always.
"A" Pick-Up Chassis
|STAGES OF COMPLETION
The chassis comes in 4 stages of completion, so you can get it any way you need it. From a bare frame (Stage I), to a frame with all brackets and mounts (Stage II), to a nearly complete (Stage III), and a complete chassis (Stage IV) with front disc brake and rearend housing. If you're currently re-doing a Model "A" pick-up or thinking about building one, this is definitely an easier route than hassling with a Model "A" passenger car chassis and having to modify it.
STAGE I is a bare frame complete with all mounting holes and nutserts. This frame has a modified rear crossmember designed specially for a Model "A" Pick-up. The Stage I bare frame gives you an excellent foundation for your pick-up to be built on. You can order it set up for a conventional Ford rearend and coil-over shocks or for a Jag rearend.
STAGE II gives you the excellent foundation of our bare frame, plus all of your mounting brackets fully jig welded. Eliminate all your hassles!
STAGE III Complete
front end, rearend housing, rear 4link suspension,
coil-over shocks, steering box and arm, drag link, trans
mount, and brake pedal are all included in the stage III
STAGE IV Our most complete chassis. Includes Stage III, master cylinder, front disc brakes, and calipers.
Why A Pick-Up Chassis?
The Model "A" pick-up has long been a popular street rod, but allowing it to sit low and still retain an excellent ride has long been a problem. Now, we offer you a solution. A chassis designed by CCR exclusively for the Model "A" pick-up. The rear crossmember has been modified to extend up into the bottom of the pick-up bed to give a nice fit, and added strength. Its special design also sits the car approximately 3 inches lower to give it better handling and a nice low look.
CCR's "A" pick-up chassis was designed out of a desire for a better truck; better looking, better handling, and a better way to build a pick-up.Jerry Keifer was working on his Model "A" pickup over 14 years ago. After he had finally gotten it together, on a stock "A" passenger car chassis, he stepped back and looked at it. After driving it, he decided he needed something different, so he tore it apart, and began examining what he could do to improve it.
Finally deciding that the chassis had to be changed, he started cutting, welding, hacking, and modifying it until he came up with a chassis specially designed for the "A" pick-up.
He put the car back together, and loved it. The pick-up fit nicely on the new crossmember. It sat approximately 3 inches lower than on the stock chassis, and it looked great! He prepped the truck for paint, added all of his trick hand crafted parts, and paint, and ended up with a magazine cover car, and was a contender for the World's Most Beautiful Roadster Award. And, this chassis can be yours! For over 14 years we have offered the CCR designed Model "A" Pick-Up chassis, for builders like you.
