All SO-CAL Speed Shop Step-Boxed 1932 frames use American Stamping rails for strength and authenticity. All frames include the following:
-The strength of an unground fillet weld on the boxing plates.
-Recessed boxing plates which increase clearance for:
- Brake lines
- Exhaust systems
- Fuel lines
- Steering components
- Power cables
-A “swept C” in the rear which minimizes the stress of the cut and spreads the load over a greater area.
-A universal trans mount that cleverly accommodates TH350, TH400, 700R4 transmissions as well as 4, 5 or 6-speed manuals.
-Front crossmember angled at 7 degrees for correct caster.
-All SO-CAL Step-Boxed frames include the following:
- Brake proportioning valve mounting pad
- All crossmembers
- Engine and trans mounts
- Steering box mount
- Front Panhard bar bracket
- Front brake line tabs
- Master cylinder bracket
- Rear radius rod tabs
- Brake pedal mount
NOTE: Due to all the variations between stock and reproduction bodies SO-CAL Step-Boxed ’32 chassis come without body mounting holes—we felt it best to leave the hole positioning up to the builder. However, strategically placed under the top rail are welded-in bosses that can be drilled and tapped for body mounting once the position of the body has been finalized in relation to the firewall and the radiator/grille shell.
NOTE: We strongly advise that you call and speak to one of our team members about your needs and exact specifications.
NOTE: For those who want something other than a small-block Chevy motor, the SO-CAL Step-Boxed chassis is now available without engine or trans mounts. It is also available special order with small-block Ford and big-block Chevy mounts. Call for more information.
