1935-1940 Ford Car & Truck Chassis

Take your 35-40 Ford to the next level in performance with a "CHRI Road Hugger” frame and custom suspension. These custom built fully boxed frames are completely engineered with each piece CAD designed and laser cut to within .001 of an inch.

The "CHRI Road-Hugger" frame integrates a custom "No Twist Center Crossmember" into its design to improve stability and strength.  This performance frame is fully jigged and hand welded in house at Canadian Hot Rods Inc.

​The Mustang II front, and solid axle rear suspension gives you a great performing chassis, with features such as double adjustable coilovers on all 4 corners, power rack and pinion steering, limited  slip  differential, and 11" diameter 4 wheel disc brakes.  This all-inclusive, fully assembled suspension package matched to the Road Hugger Frame, gives your 35-40 Ford the high performance agility, stability and control for the street.

CHRI hand builds our "Road Hugger" chassis to ensure the best possible fitment. The CHRI exclusive "No Twist Center Cross Member" provides a very stiff platform, which in turn contributes to a superior handling chassis.
