Morrison GT-Sport Chassis
The only downside to buying a new Morrison GT-Sport Chassis for your ’68-72 GM A-body (Chevelle, LeMans, GTO, Cutlass, Skylark) is that once you put the body over it, you won’t be able to behold its beauty—but you’ll sure be able to feel it. Installation is essentially done by lifting the body off the OEM frame and dropping it on the AME GT-Sport chassis. The chassis has special inner-angled framerails that tuck tightly under the floorpan, allowing for a lower stance. Perfect for any Pro Touring project, the chassis has been designed to significantly improve the handling and ride of the GM A-body, while its triangulated four-bar rear suspension is also engineered to provide excellent traction for high-horsepower engines.
The front suspension incorporates special tubular control arms, adjustable coilover shocks, and an adjustable antisway bar. It’s computer-designed with the optimum camber angle, roll center, and caster angle for superior handling, a comfortable ride, and zero bumpsteer. Other features of the AME GT-Sport chassis include a power rack-and-pinion steering, a 9-inch rearend housing, and it mounts to accommodate virtually any engine and transmission combination. Options include C6 Corvette front disc brakes, SVO rear disc brakes, and a complete third-member/axle package.

Classic Instruments has been around a long time, 30 years to be exact, and over the years they’ve worked hard to listen to their customers—’65-66 Mustang customers, in this case. Classic has just released a bevy of choices to satisfy the pickiest Blue Oval bandit, including gauges in G-Stock, Hot Rod, Velocity Black, Velocity White, and White Hot. Classic’s five-gauge set (speedometer, fuel 75-10 ohms range, volts, water temp, and oil pressure) also offers the option of a tachometer (an Ultimate gauge), and combines it with mounting brackets to fit into your Mustang housing. The mounting system is easy to install and will fit with most aftermarket bezels.
The all-new Mustang SureFit system now features Vintage Air’s proven Gen IV technology. These systems use Vintage Air’s exclusive microprocessor control and servo motor drives to eliminate cable or vacuum operation, and their patented Cable Converter potentiometers convert your standard factory lever controls to fully electronic operation. Additional features of the Gen IV include a separate plate and fin A/C coil and their Cuprobrazed heater coil with a SPAL permanent magnet blower motor to deliver maximum performance and “just right” temperature adjustment. SureFit Systems come complete with evaporator kit, standard cable converters, compressor, mounting brackets, condenser kit, safety switch, and all necessary refrigerant lines. In most cases, SureFit kits also mount to factory holes in the dash and firewall. Street price for the complete Mustang Gen IV unit is around $1,334.95.
ShowWheels is relatively new to our shores—they come from Australia, where the aesthetics of performance, value, and appearance are darned near identical to those we hold here in the States. And as our good fortune has it, the tire footprints, vehicle types, and wheel fitments are pretty spot-on with our Aussie brothers. So when ShowWheels sent us this pic of their new-to-the-U.S. “Streeter” wheel, we had to get your attention. This thing has classic styling (you can get it with a painted gray center or fully polished), a large assortment of sizes (17x7 all the way up to 20x10), and an affordable price (wheels start at just $170). All the standard domestic Ford, GM, and Mopar bolt circles are represented, and best of all, the Streeter has a really aggressive deep dish going for it. We’ll also note that you can get the Streeter in late-model offsets for Mustangs and Camaros, too. We think the Streeter is the perfect hoop for the street machine that needs classic styling without the cookie-cutter look!
