'55-'59 Chevy Truck SuperSlam Chassis

Scott’s Hotrods manufactures the most complete chassis on the market for ANY Year/Make/Model vehicle from 1925 to 1987.

Every project vehicle will benefit from replacing the old, worn out and weak stock chassis with a brand new, rigid, custom-built American-made chassis.  Every Scott’s Chassis is built from raw materials using our precision chassis tables and vehicle-specific jigs to ensure tighter-than-factory tolerances. 

We engineer chassis for all different types of applications: Street Cruiser, ProStreet, ProTouring, Low Static Ride Height, Stock-Appearing or completely laid out on the ground.  Our SuperSlam Chassis will lay frame 100% front to back.  All of our chassis are Built-To-Order for your desired ride height, your desired handling characteristics and your custom track or wheelbase.

All Scott’s chassis feature Mandrel-Bent Frame Rails with our Independent Front Suspension & equal-length parallel 4-Bar Rear Suspension with either Coilovers (Single-Adjustable Aldan American or RideTech) or Slam Specialties Airbags with external single-adjustable RideTech HQ shocks and Wilwood Disc Brakes on all four corners.  We do not offer lesser quality components like leaf springs and drums brakes.

The chassis and crossmembers are built to accommodate the full seating area; unlike other chassis manufacturers that use cookie-cutter chassis patterns & components that can cause you to lose some seating room.  Little to No floor modifications are required for most applications.

We even build complete chassis for Unibody vehicles, giving them the rigidity they so desperately need.  Floor Modifications are required on these applications to accept the full frame.

Although the little things can get overlooked by other manufacturers, floor clearance, exhaust clearance and rigidity are essential traits for every custom chassis we build.  We take the extra time to make sure all of the little things are not overlooked.
