This is the chassis for my own 56 Nomad, which is the first one I designed and built. It features late C4 front and rear suspension, Dana 44 rear. The frame is narrowed to accept up to 345 tires and it has a custom transmission crossmember and torque arm. Engine is an upgraded GM Ramjet 502 with a Viper T56 6-speed transmission.The fuel tank is custom built from stainless with a custom pump unit using a 255 LPH Walbro pump. Exhaust is 3 1/2" and 3" stainless with 3 1/2" DMH electric cutouts.
The frame to the left is an original 55 convertible frame modified with an early C4 k-member and a 2" suspension drop. Note the notches in the top of the frame rails required for the 2" drop. It has SBC engine mounts and a Dana 36 rear.
The two pictures to the right show a conversion frame as built by CED, using a seamless frame, late k-member, BBC engine mounts, and an optional AME center section kit. The lower picture is of the same frame after assembly by the owner with a Ramjet 502, coilover shocks, and stainless plumbing and exhaust.
This very customized seamless conversion frame features new narrowed rear frame rails (for a narrowed IRS), a late C4 k-member, BBC engine mounts, and an AME center section kit.
Another very customized frame we built using a seamless frame, early C4 k-member with 3.5" front suspension drop, new narrowed and raised rear frame rails using a Viper batwing on a C4 Dana 44, and with an AME-type custom center section and custom hoop.
This standard full conversion frame is also a seamless one, using a late k-member, and SBC engine mounts
This conversion frame is a bit more custom. It's again a seamless frame using a late k-member, LS engine mounts, and an optional AME center section kit with a custom CED transmission mount.
To the left is a fairly standard full conversion frame for a '57 Chevy, using a late C4 k-member in a seamless Tri-5 frame, LS engine mounts, and a CED custom transmission crossmember.
