SRIII Motorsports Super Tube Chassis

The 1965 Custom Corvette Coupe that recently sold at the Mecum Kissimmee Auction is outfitted with an SRIII Motorsports Super Tube Chassis. SRIII Motorsports is a leading builder of Hi-tech round tube frames and chassis for Corvettes and street rods

The SRIII chassis features a round-tube design, engineered for superior strength and rigidity. Their Super Tube Chassis is one of their most popular items.

“The three-dimensional network of round tubing creates a space frame that resists the twisting forces applied during hard cornering and acceleration. When coupled with the 1984-up Corvette forged aluminum suspension, unsprung weight is reduced producing a softer, more controlled ride. Also, the SRIII package is hundreds of pounds lighter than the original chassis and suspension used on the 1963-82 Corvettes, adding to the upgrade benefits.”

Other custom features include PST carbon fiber half shafts, QA1 adjustable coil-over shocks, 4.11 Dana 44 rear differential, Baer 6 piston caliper brakes, Wilwood master cylinder, and proportioning valve, and Wilwood hydraulic master cylinder pedal kit.
