This frame is designed for the low ride stance and modifications to make it accept a spring on top of the axle configuration would be up to the builder. A different front cross member would be needed to accept the spring and then also the front would be considerably higher than the rear which would also require changes to the rear of the frame and suspension mounts. If running a T body the width would be appropriate but if not then we do offer a model A frame number 91657145 or individual components to build an A style frame and with the individual parts could build it in the width desired. Other alternative would be some 1 ½ x 3 tubing and build from scratch.

There is not a horsepower rating on this frame. If I were planning to install a 1000 HP engine into a frame like this I would add X bracing and crossmembers everywhere possible.

Yes this frame can be picked up at our warehouse in Lincoln, NE. Be sure to put your order in ahead of time for this frame so that we have it ready for you. Frames and T bucket kits require a little extra time for us to get your order ready so they must be ordered in advance when picking them up from our parts counter.

It Should. I Used A Fabricated Model A Truck Cab An Bed With This Frame. The Original Steel Roadster Is Very Close To The Fiberglass Body.

This frame is of hot rod design and not intended as an OEM type replacement. The original ’27 frame had straight frame rails with NO kick up over the rear end for the lower ride height and the length at the rear was different. The front and rear dimensions side to side or width is different and the front spring sat up in a cross member and our hot rod frame uses a spring behind the axle set up to get a lower ride height. Wheel base is different at 116”. It would be difficult and take considerable alteration to the frame and your body to make it work as an original replacement frame. Front is set up for spring behind solid axle and the rear we use is normally coil over in configuration.
