  • Frame / Springs: Looking for a 1953 Frame

    I ran into a gentleman at Carlise who is looking for a frame for a 1953 two-door. He lives in Connecticut. Any leads?

    We will first need to know what wheelbase he needs. A two door sedan is different than a two door C/K.

      He indicated that it is a 2-dr hdtp cpe...he said he thought that is was interchangeable up to 1959....he also thought that the later frame was built stronger...he wants to use it for racing...

      Thank you for looking.

        How much horsepower does he think he'll be putting into it? That changes things.

            That would be a K body with a 120.5 inch wheelbase. You can use up through a 1964 C/K frame with minor modifications, such as rear springs. The later frames are a heavier gauge than the 1953 frame.
