Pete Eastwood upgraded the chassis before the car was sent to Boyds, adding the ladder bar rear suspension. The 56 Olds rearend was narrowed 8 inches. The car rides on coilovers and Konis at all wheels, with a custom dropped tube axle and 70s-style radius rods up front. Underneath that classic body lies a beast of a chassis, which hasnt changed much since it was first built. The 4130 chrome-moly 11/2-inch round-tube frame was inspired by floppers of the period and built to the stock Willys dimensions. It features vintage hardware like a reversed Corvair steering box, and it originally had Logghe shocks and Watts-link rear suspension. It still has a Hurst-Airheart master cylinder and solid-rotor four-wheel discs.
