---- The RAVANA chassis design authentically recreates the spirit of the great sports car builders of the late 1950's and early 1960's. Our chassis was developed using the same tools and techniques the great sports car builders out it California used back in the 1950's. ------- A level concrete floor, framing square, plumb bob and a tape measure. The starting point was a small block chevy engine. (Click on any photo for a larger image)

--- There is nothing fancy about our chassis. The RAVANA will have NO ABS, NO traction control. But let's be realistic, stuff a 300 + HP small block chevy in a car that weighs around 1900 pounds and you have a recipe for serious rapid forward motion. So the RAVANA does have disc brakes up front to slow this beast down. A simple tubular a arm front suspension, coil over shocks at all four corners, -------------------- (click the photo for larger image) a bullet proof Ford 9-inch rear end. The rack and pinion steering reacts quickly. The wooden steering wheel feels like it is directly connected to the front wheels. .The bucket seats are molded into the bodyshell. Trimmed out in your choice of the finest leather. The dash face is machined aluminum and houses the speedometer, tachometer, fuel, oil pressure guages. (Sorry, no cup holders.) -----------------------------------
