The Nostalgia T frame is engineered to provide the ultimate in economy and ease of assembly. It features the same spring-behind-axle front suspension as the Budget T, but includes front shock/headlight mounts. The coilover rear suspension uses traditional-style radius rods and a panhard bar, with all necessary mounts welded in place. If you're looking for an affordable, well-engineered T-bucket chassis requiring only basic mechanical skills to assemble, the Nostalgia T is for you!
Shown with optional rearend and engine mounts installed. This part number does not include a rear axle housing or engine/transmission mounts (as pictured). If you wish to add these items to your chassis, simply purchase these items along with your frame kit.
All of our T kits are also available with chrome suspension. This option includes chrome plated: front and rear hairpins, rear coilovers, front axle, front leaf spring, front shocks, steering arms, tie rod, drag link, and related hardware.

This product requires a 3-4 week build time.
To complete the package to a rolling chassis you will need the front brakes and hubs along with the wheels and tires. In the rear you will need a complete housing and if the housing and axles are ordered along with the frame package the brackets are welded onto the housing free of charge. You will also need the rear brakes in either drum or disc and the desired wheels and tires. The steering gear is in place and you can mount a tube to the input shaft or configure a preferred way to turn the steering gear in put to make it a rolling and turning chassis. It normally comes loosely assembled and painting and bolting together to specified torque is up to the customer.
