Bolt-In Chassis for Your Mustang

The weak unibody construction of the early Mustang has always left a lot to be desired in the world of handling performance, and to solve this fifty year dilemma, Schwartz now offers a full-frame chassis for ’64-’73 Mustangs.

The Schwartz G-Machine chassis is a complete full-frame design that will bolt under your classic Mustang. The efficient frame design increases rigidity and decreases weight by replacing your cast-iron steering gearbox and front end components along with the antiquated, heavy leaf spring rear suspension The G-Machine chassis accepts late-model powertrains including Coyote engines—Schwartz can supply any Ford engine and transmission with your chassis.

The front suspension features upper A-arms fit with needle-bearings and is engineered with separate camber and caster adjustments (without using shims). The rear suspension features a triangulated four-bar system with teflon-lined spherical rod-ends for bind-free operation and a smooth ride. The Schwartz G-Machine Chassis incorporates longer shocks at all four corners than any other chassis to improve the overall handling and ride quality of the suspension. The modern geometry and race-bred components of the G-Machine chassis provides a Pro Touring stance and luxury-car comfort without sacrificing any ground clearance.

Rocket Fire

The Indy Roadsters of the ’50s and ’60s dominated the track with six-pin-drive magnesium wheels. The lighter weight six-pin replaced the outdated wire-laced wheels of the 1920s and became as much of an icon as the Offy engine. The latest addition to the Rocket Racing Wheels, the Rocket Fire, takes its styling cues from the original Indy Roadster wheels, and features the same classic ribbed design front and smooth on reverse side.

The Rocket Fire is constructed of durable high-tech aluminum and served up at an incredible price point. Originally, the six-pin wheels were held on by a pressure plate and knockoff. The Rocket Fire recreates the appearance of a six-pin pressure plate and knockoff attachment, but with the safety and security of a five-lug bolt-on.

Precision-crafted from A356 aluminum , the Rocket Fire will be available in 16x5 in multiple finishes and bolt patterns.
