1947-1953 Chevrolet

Classic trucks have grown in popularity in recent years and the ability of AME’s GT Sport chassis to easily convert the harsh-riding, wallowing 1947-53 Chevrolet/ GMC pickup into a crisp handling, comfortable ride is clearly a contributing factor. Craig Morrison’s green Farm Truck helped popularize the genre.

Engineered as a bolt-on swap for the OEM frame, AME’s GT Sport chassis features 2”x6” main rails for added structural rigidity. Designed for a low-slung stance there are provisions for the exhaust system to tuck in tightly for optimum ground clearance. Like all other AME GT Sport chassis, all required body mounts and core support are included. An optional pedal mount kit compliments the installation.

Up front AME’s Sport IFS with tubular control arms, Wilwood ProSpindles, Strange Engineering adjustable coilovers and an adjustable anti-roll bar provide outstanding handling characteristics that can be tailored to your driving. A custom-valved 17.5:1 power rack and pinion steering is employed.

A parallel 4-bar set up with Johnny Joint rod ends attaches to a 9” rear, with adjustable Strange Engineering coilovers, a Panhard bar and an adjustable anti-roll bar constituting the highly effective rear suspension.

The chassis is available with a wide variety of engine and transmission mounts to accommodate virtually any Chevrolet/GM V-8 engine coupled with any popular manual or automatic transmission.

Make a Morrison GT Sport chassis the foundation for your restomod classic pickup. It’s an investment in driving pleasure and your truck’s overall value.
