Once upon a time, old American cars did not turn very well. In fact, one might say that while American cars looked great and drove better, the one thing they could not handle well were corner. But things have changed over the years, and not just for new cars. A number of aftermarket companies have emerged with suspension solutions for cars older than you or I, turning an old clunker into a corner carver.
Total Cost Involved is a leader in classic car suspension kits. Don’t believe us? Check out these two videos of TCI suspension-equipped cars carving up the autocross track.
First up is the 180+ mph ‘32 Ford Roadster owned by Don Chemello. This classic roadster has won many awards for its attention to detail and powerful drivetrain. But we bet you don’t see too many ‘32 Fords hitting the autocross track and absolutely dominating it. That’s thanks to the TCI Engineering chassis underneath that classic Ford roadster body.
Let’s say you’re into something a bit more modern and muscle car. Well just check out what TCI’s MII front end with billet adjustable coil overs and 4-link rear suspension did for Nick Licata’s ‘64 Ford Falcon. These two cars fly through the cones faster than their stock forebears could have ever hoped. So if you’ve got an old car with an old suspension, TCI is the ticket to some serious corner carving.
