    So in my latest summit mini catalog they have lucky 7 rolling chasis for $3699. Which seems pretty cheap says 30-35 ford complete chasis call to price out with your pick of suspension and everything else. Anyone know what you actually get for that $3699 and the quality. Seems super cheap for a complete chasis...

    are you SURE that they don't specify exactly what comes with your $3699 selection? I've never seen a catalog yet (mini or otherwise) that doesn't specify "engine accessories shown are not included", or "chromed/dropped axle for display only", or "gunbelt does not include pistol or ammo shown". Most catalogs are quite specific about their kits (of any kind) with an additional breakdown of the prices on popular options (3rd member, steering box, chromed packages, etc).

    Call 'em

    I think that is "Complete Chassis" not a roller. Roller seems much more expensive at $8000 for the 34 Ford

    It appears that I need to get my chassis jig out of storage....

    That's just the frame, no axles

    In the catalog I got it said pic your suspension and components. Starting at $3699. I was also understanding a chasis is frame with axles and suspension etc...
     
  10. The title of the item linked to says pretty clearly "Stage 1", which usually means a bare frame with box plates and crossmembers welded in. No suspension stuff. Don't expect something for nothing.

    It gets confusing when you read their overview:

    Custom-build your street rod from the ground up with one of these Lucky 7 Enterprises complete chassis kits. They are available in a wide variety of configurations and styles to suit your specific needs. The kits are custom-built to order--you choose the parts, suspension style, brake type, steering system, and axle design to build your dream rolling chassis. The Lucky 7 Enterprises complete chassis kits are available in three basic designs: 1932 Ford, 1933-34 Ford, and 1935-40 Ford. Please call us at 1-800-230-3030 for more information on pricing and how to custom-build your specific rolling chassis design.

    They shouldn't use a generic description and photos for all versions!!
    The Stage 1 photos shows axles and suspension!

    No, the first pic has just a frame highlighted. The subsequent pics clearly read: "Image is a representation of this part. Actual part may vary."
    Right on top of the picture. [​IMG]

    I believe Rich nailed it as usual.
    The whole breakdown on the frames.
    http://www.summitracing.com/search/...terprises-Complete-Chassis-Kits/?autoview=SKU

    For comparison a Speedway 32 frame is 4299.99 for a competitive frame.

    We have a few HAMB member Chassis shop owners who can build a hell of a frame for a better price (one quoted a price to me). When you get up into the complete rolling chassis though a guy would have to do some serious research before deciding.
