If you have ever wanted a 1932 Roadster but don't like the cramped cockpit, Speedway has the answer! We started with a clean slate and no expense was spared in the development of this classic street rod. By stretching the frame and adding 2" to the length of the doors, you are able to get in and out of the car much easier. Also by moving the seating position back 2", you have much more leg room and a smoother ride than an original 1932 Ford.
The custom 106" wheelbase chassis is a unique tubular design that channels the body over the frame rails and includes the front and rear crossmembers, center K-member, and rear Panhard bar frame mount (installed). Also installed on this frame are the headlight mounts, front upper shock mounts, front radius rod mounts, and front spring mounts.
This frame is made to order. Please call for an estimate on lead time.

The Lo-Boy frame is designed to accept a spring-behind front tube axle with hairpin radius rods, a multi-leaf spring and tube shocks. Vega cross steering and Early Chevy spindles are also recommended for this kit. Chassis will accept most common solid rear axles, which are mounted using quarter elliptic leaf springs, lower torque arms, Panhard bar, and tube shocks. For maxium performance, use our hi-tech composite mono-leaf quarter elliptic springs.
The chassis is specifically designed to accept a Small Block Chevy engine and Turbo 350 transmission, but can be easily modified to accept a varitey of powertrains. In fact, we offer 4 different radiators for this kit:
