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.
Following the successful launch of AME’s GT Sport chassis for the Tri-5 Chevrolet, the next vehicle to be targeted for development of a high-performance bolt-on replacement chassis was the 1953-62 Corvette, or C1. The initial development work was done on a 1960 Corvette dubbed Project 3G as the stated goal was to achieve at least 1G in acceleration, braking and lateral load.
The scope of hot rodding took a monumental leap in 2004 when Art and Craig Morrison drove from Fife, Washington to Fontana, California with their Project GT55 Chevrolet and visibly impressed a collection of highly credentialed automotive writers with a display of acceleration, braking and handling at AAA Speedway (then known as California Speedway). The era of the ultimate bolt-on restomod was born in the form of an AME GT Sport chassis.
The engineering team at Art Morrison Enterprises has developed a versatile GT Sport chassis for the full-sized 1959-64 Chevrolet that checks all the boxes: Contemporary low stance, superior handling and excellent ride comfort.
Without a doubt one of the most desirable restomods on the planet is created by combining the iconic styling of the 1963-67 Corvette Stingray with AME’s sophisticated GT Sport chassis with Multilink IRS and contemporary LS/LT power. It’s a package that will deliver incredible driving pleasure with the admiring glances of enthusiasts the world over.
Chevelle / GM A-Body
Designing a GT Sport chassis for the GM A-body had its own particular challenges; not the least of which was positioning the frame tightly under the body. The engineering team at Art Morrison Enterprises solved this problem with a unique angular frame rail that tucks right under the floor plan. This provides extra ground clearance and allows for a lower stance. Improving torsional rigidity was another consideration.
The first generation Camaro presents a unique challenge - manufactured in GM’s plants in Van Nuys, California and Norwood, Ohio differ to the point where a single GT Sport chassis cannot fit both. So we’ve designed a 1-2-3 chassis where the front and rear subframes need to be connected after they’ve been bolted into place, which allows the builder to best fit the floorpan (cutting a couple slots in the floorboard and trimming the unibody rear rails is required).
Art Morrison Enterprises (AME) is releasing one of the most impactful upgrades to the 1966-70 B-body Mopar platform with the introduction of their new direct bolt-on K-member. Combining style, strength, and performance this true bolt-on K-member maintains the car's classic looks while modernizing its performance through no-compromise modern suspension geometry resulting in unparalleled handling, high-speed stability, and ride quality.
