Each chassis is hand made to your exact specifications by David Barrett in Sanger, California.
David Barrett is the guy to see when it comes to Manx Chassis. His extensive research on the evolution of dune buggies and the making of the perfect chassis for your needs is now available online. Options include Steel Floors, Aluminum Floors, Roll Cages, Bulkheads Front & Rear and anything custom you can think of. I install a motor and transmission to be sure your parts will fit when you start building. There is more than enough room under this type of chassis for any motor and carb combo.
Custom fit full tube chassis. This chassis is built around your body. In essence, it is a sand rail-type chassis stretched around a manx body, with a cage integrated through your body. Raised chassis ground clearance can be 12 inches front and rear using stock VW front and rear suspensions, and is still driveable on the street. Lowered chassis ground clearance can be 4 inches or less, depending on tire sizes. I MUST have your body on the chassis jig to build this chassis.
Flat chassis. This one designed for Manx buggies, shown with bulkheads installed front and rear; VW torsion installed; 18 gauge floor installed. Powder Coated. This style can be built to any length to fit various buggies or kit cars
