1948-52 Ford Truck Frames & Chassis

Progressive Automotive, 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, Ford, F1, chassis, frame, panel, truck

 These frames & rolling chassis are designed to fit 1948, 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1952 Ford short bed trucks only. For Long bed trucks, inquire. Call for information and pricing for your specific frame or chassis needs. Proudly manufactured at our shop in Baltimore Ohio.

 Our hot rod frames feature our new boxed frame rails, constructed from 10 gauge steel. Our rails mimic the original shape, contours and widths of the original frame, unlike mandrel bent box tube. The rails are fully welded and the corner welds smoothed.

  Unlike the original Ford frame, our street rod frames incorporate our tubular crossmember. Not only does this create a stronger frame, but it allows room for all of the popular transmissions.

 Other options are available, such as Custom ride heights, Air ride, brake upgrades, new 3rd members and Kugel Suspension.
