Woody’s Hot Rodz has just introduced their all-new ’57 Chevrolet gasser chassis. A study in modern fabrication, the chassis it beautifully finished. The utter simplicity of straight-axles front and rear make this a very attractive way to go. The nose-high stance is built into the axle and Chris Sondles, of Woody’s Hot Rodz, reports the turning radius is every bit as good as a stock ’57 (something a lot of ’60s straight-axle cars couldn’t manage).

When we were at Real Deal Steel in Sanford, Florida, Sondles came down from Bright, Indiana, with his new gasser frame and mounted a two-door hardtop body on that chassis. Woody’s is a dealer for Real Deal Steel so it was only a natural that Sondles would develop a great gasser chassis for these cars. Woody’s also offers at least two other Tri-Five Chevrolet chassis—one based on stock-style suspension and another for the Pro Touring set, but for now let’s take a quick look at the gasser frame. Yes, the reproduction ’57 Chevrolet steel body and frame have arrived and we’re looking forward to a stream of hot rod Chevys rolling out of garages again, just like they did in the ’60s.
