beast is a beauty

November 03, 2015
this beast is a thing of beauty. i have no doubts about the strength of this frame. the welds look like a robot did them. because i am building a driver and not a show car i didn't try to grind it smooth, the factory used about 24 grit grinding wheel to finish. i used a couple of 80 grit flap discs to dress things some and knock the edges down, blasted it with primer and painted it. The only complaints i have is i wanted to install a brake and clutch pedal (just in case) but the brake pedal bracket is welded too nicely to the frame rail to risk cutting it off, and the rear shock brackets are not as pictured. be sure to have a good charge on your cordless screwdriver to un-crate it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Extreme High Quality

September 04, 2013
I own this Speedway Model A frame and wouldn't hesitate for a moment to recommend this quality piece of craftsmanship to anyone. I was surprisingly pleased by the frame when received. I guess I was expecting much, much less for the price and it not being from a specialty custom chassis builder. The attention to detail is bar none. The measurements, mounts, built in threads etc... Are ALL spot-on. The frame itself is ABSOLUTELY square, true, straight and level. Every single weld is seamlessly perfect! I had researched and priced several frames before this purchase and because of budget reasons I opted for the Speedway frame and figured I could and would repair, alter and or remedy any flaws and be happy considering the immensely lower price then other custom comparison frames. MUCH to my surprise upon arrival and inspection this frame is well above and beyond anything I could have expected for triple what I paid. As a matter of fact, I have bought a similar chassis from a custom builder 5 years ago for a considerable amount more $$$$ and embarrassingly that frame for triple this cost wasn't nearly 1/2 the quality as the Speedway frame! Next few paychecks I will be ordering my suspension items and will be doing so without hesitation. I have no doubts in quality of anything I receive. Thank you Speedway for a great skeleton to my newest project, and thank you for providing a quick easy way to shop for my hobby!!!! Joe
Pros:
  • value & quality
Cons:
  • i didn't buy my first frame through speedway
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dear Sir, I'm sorry to say that we have never offered this sort of frame with a mustang box already installed. The only way these have been offered is with the Vega steering box.

We apologize but we do not have a jig set up on the Model A frame for the flathead motor mounts. If you have the mounts that will utilize the bolt thru cushion kit number 7209314 fabricating the mounts should not be a problem, or part number 1353274 works with many T and A frames for installing a flathead V8.

We have customers with big blocks and even blown big blocks in our Speedway Model A frames. The motor mounts of course would need to be changed and the location of the Vega box mount would be another concern for clearance to your pan.

The model A frame number 91657045 is of different dimensions than the T’s but have been modified to work with the T bodies. The wheel base also is different so if planning on a full fendered project this would also need to be taken into account.

Will 1929 Closed Cab pickup body bolt up Hi. Was just wondering if a 1929 closed cab pickup body and bed will fit your model A chassis fine. I believe the factory cars and trucks shared the same frame. I would like the truck to sit low as possible while using traditional I-beam front and coil over rear suspension. Thanks

Ford used the same frame under all Model A’s from 1928-1931 including the half ton short or tall cab pickup Most guys will use our frame with an I beam axle, to set one down in the weeds there is a few things that can be done Using a Mono leaf spring will set the front down about another 1 ½ with the spring set up in the cross member and having the spacer plates under the spring so that the U bolts will tighten up. Or you could slam it with a 5 inch dropped axle and using a Posies super slider stacked springs. I don’t recommend using a Mono leaf with a 5 inch axle because of a scrub line that something could drag. Setting up the rear is easy using coil over shocks and springs but keep in mind that the shorter the spring is the stiffer the ride will be. So you have to make a happy compromise

Speedway part number 91657045. That Model A frame has the engine and trans mounts already welded on. The mounting holes on a th700r4 transmission are further back than on a th350. You could either move the trans crossmemnber back, or make some sort of adapter plate and make it work, but it would not bolt directly up.
