As hard as it is hard to believe, another week is nearing completion. That’s right, Thursday has landed firmly on our garage floor. With the end of the week fast approaching, are you making weekend garage plans? Maybe they have already been made? If your plans for enjoying some garage time with your project include a little research into upgrading your classic’s chassis, you might want to check this out.
In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a short hop back to May 2018, to check out: Art Morrison Enterprises: Creating A Solid Foundation. In the article, the great guys at Morrison Enterprises opened the doors to show us what goes into making a complete hot-rod chassis.
Art Morrison got his start in a small garage, building components like ladder-bar kits and four links. From there, the business grew into one that can supply nearly any chassis or chassis component to make almost any car handle better than it did when new.
In the original article, Craig Morrison, Art’s son and Operations Manager of the company, walked us through what goes into every Art Morrison chassis. For instance, “We have a guy that does what we call chipping the frame,” Craig told us. “He goes over every inch of weld and knocks off every piece of cold spatter. When he does this, it does two things: One, it makes the weld look as good as possible, and Two, it keeps our quality control as good as possible, because someone is inspecting every square inch of weld.”
There is a lot of good information in the original article, and that is why I thought Art Morrison Enterprises: Creating A Solid Foundation would be a great article for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
