While they might not be as cherished as the muscle cars of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, there is a huge fan-base for the General Motors G-Body cars. Models like the Monte Carlo, El Camino, Grand National and others all took over the mantle following the onset of CAFE regulations. The aftermarket support for these cars has always been solid, but now the folks at Roadster Shop are once again looking to up the game. We’d like to introduce you to the Roadster Shop G-Body Fast Track Chassis.
If you’ve ever dreamed of pro-touring a G-Body, this Illinois-based shop has created a platform designed with performance and usability in mind. Specializing in bringing vintage trucks and muscle cars into the modern era with full-chassis solutions (and social distancing practices), Roadster Shop has turned their attention to these beloved cars from 1978-1988.
The Fast Track Chassis features 10 gauge steel fully boxed, frame rails, a unique front suspension with a 58.75-inch track width, C6 Corvette spindle and hub assembly, Penske Roadster Shop Edition performance coilovers, a 1.25-inch splined front sway bar with C6 Corvette end links, a larger diameter 4-bar rear suspension, and a Ford 9″ housing with S/S 31 spline axles by Strange Engineering. Despite the incredible amount of performance hardware, the Fast Track chassis utilizes all of the factory body, bumper, and core support mounts. This means that buyers won’t be forced to hack apart their car to fit this chassis underneath the bodywork.
Combine that with the fact that the company offers engine mount options for small block, big block, and LS-based engines, and you have an incredibly versatile launching pad for a build. Roadster Shop themselves offer a vast range of custom options that buyers can select to perfectly tailor their G-Body Fast Track Chassis for their specific needs. It doesn’t come cheap however, as it carries a base price of $17,495. For that kind of money however, you’d be hard pressed to do anything that will improve the performance of a G-Body car as dramatically as the Fast Track Chassis.
