Morrison GT Sport Chassis For C1 and C2 Corvettes
Highly respected chassis and suspension manufacturer Art Morrison Enterprises has added to its line of “bolt on” GT Sport chassis with a superbly engineered gem for the iconic 1963-67 Corvette Stingray. It features the latest in 3D laser scanning technology and joins AME’s chassis for First Generation (1953-62) Vettes in the GT Sport lineup.
While the original Stingray did feature independent front and rear suspensions, Morrison’s engineering team has supplanted the 50-year-old designs with AME’s Multi-Link I.R.S. and the acclaimed Sport I.F.S. which offer significant improvements in handling and ride. The track width is slightly narrower than stock, which accommodates a lower ride height and use of wider tires. Chassis can be configured with ride heights either 1-3/4″ or 3″ lower than OEM. The lower center of gravity is, of course, an important handling benefit. The frame boasts a triangulated structure that significantly stiffens the front end, has hefty 0.180″ wall rails, and special rear gussets to reduce torsional twist.
Other features include crossmember passageways for the exhaust and mounts for SBC, BBC or LS/LT series engines and all popular automatic and standard shift transmissions. The C1 cannot accommodate a big block.
Representing the epitome of what a restomod is all about, AME’s new GT Sport chassis for C2 ‘Vettes combines contemporary handling, ride and stance with the Stingray’s classic styling. For additional information visit www.ArtMorrison.com
