1962 - 67 Chevy II Nova Gasser Style

Bolt On Straight Axle Subframe

Build a Gasser in just one weekend!



B'z Rods Frame

The problem with straight axles on the street has traditionally been driveability. Our frames have been engineered to solve this problem. It has a front steer design to provide virtually no bump steer. Correct shackle angles and 8 degrees of positive caster will allow you to cruise the freeway with one hand on the wheel. This setup also allows you to use almost any oil pan. You don’t need the hard to find horsepower robbing Chevy II style with the notch in the sump. Plenty of clearance for those big headers too! Under chassis or, for a real Gasser, get the fenderwells!


The frame horns and crossmember have been built to be a perfect fit for your stock radiator core support. With 8 threaded inserts installed, it will bolt right on and make it an easy deal to install your fenders, grill, etc. You can also get optional thru-bolt sleeved bumper support mounts. installed if you decide to use your stock front bumper. The urethane bushed tube style motor mounts provide the strength of solid motor mounts without the severe vibration. However, if you are drag racing and require a motor plate, we can build one. Contact us with your requirements.


These are quality, well engineered subframes designed for lots of horsepower, and even a wheelstand or two. Jig built with the closet tolerances in the industry. All mounting plates are precision laser cut and the upper support tubes are CAD profiled to guarantee ease of installation.

We will custom build the perfect package for your Hot Rod.  Most of the work is done for you, jig built and fully TIG welded to your specifications.  Pinion angles and instant centers are calculated for your specific build. We MUST have very precise measurements from you for a successful installation. Welding and some chassis setup skills are also required for a perfect final result. We will always be glad to assist in any technical help, but the end results will always depend on the final installation. If you are not qualified, or do not have a qualified chassis shop to complete the installation, we highly recommend you bring the car to B’z Rods.  All pricing is FOB B’z Rods.
