Art Morrison has a soft spot in his heart for this genre Chevrolet, given that he received a 1954 Chevrolet as a high school graduation gift from his parents.
When the engineering team at AME set about designing a GT Sport chassis for 1949-54 Chevrolets they employed the characteristics of AME’s highly successful Tri-5 chassis. It is exceptionally stable, corners hard without appreciable lean, won’t dive under braking and has a great ride.
Up front is AME’s highly acclaimed Sport IFS with tubular control arms, Wilwood ProSpindles, adjustable Strange Engineering coilovers and an adjustable anti-roll bar.
There are two options for the rear suspension; a triangulated 4-bar with a 9” housing or AME’s exemplary Multilink IRS. Both feature Strange Engineering adjustable coilovers.
A variety of engine/trans mounts are available for late model LS/LT power or small and big block V8, plus most popular automatic and manual transmissions.
This chassis is the perfect restomod compliment to a wide variety of body styles that range from the unique fastback sedans to elegant Bel Air hardtops.
