ATTENTION! Dakota spindles and caliper brackets wanted

Yep, I need spindles with steering arms attached and caliper brackets.

If you installed a set of dropped spindles lately and haven’t thrown your stock spindles away, I want to buy them. I need early (1987-1990) and late (1991-1996) spindles. Box’em up and give me some information at info@industrialchassisinc.com

I will give you a $100.00 credit toward a set of our tie rod drops to eliminate the bumpsteer inherent with the dropped spindles. Please contact us if you want to use this option.

 

Thanks!

1953-64 Studebaker frame

We have been working on a complete replacement frame for the Studebaker coupe. We had built a complete frame for a customer a few years back where we integrated one of our Studebaker clips and an early C4 Corvette rear suspension. We also learned what does and doesn’t work to make a frame that fits the stock body without modification. Well, very few and simple modifications anyway. Those tiny foot-well boxes behind the front seat have got to go. What we are delivering is a frame with significant improvements in strength. And almost all the stock body mounts are located in stock locations and stock body rubbers are used. No need to alter your front fenders, stock components fit.

Straighter frame rails and more clearance for exhaust systems. We keep the entire frame profile slim for good ground clearance as well as give you room for future modifications. We made the rear kickup quite a bit different by utilizing more space under the stock floor. This gives  us better places to attach the triangulated four bars and still not have to modify the floor. This rear kick up is also slightly narrower so that if you decide to do a mini-tub on the rear you have frame clearance to run up to a 275 wide rear tire on a 9″ wheel.

Full Frame for 53-64 Studebaker coupes.
