  Hot Rod Jim's Chassis Shop

Mr. Caruth’s 56 2D hardtop started as most of our projects do first we make them faster then we realize that they don’t quite handle like we want with all that extra power. When that happened Mr. Caruth called us and ordered one of Hot Rod Jim’s Basic Rolling Chassis  to correct the problems with his old chassis and give his car the system it needed to get that power to the ground.  

Special thanks to Bob Caruth for sending us the photos of his build.
