I bought a chassis from person in Ohio that said the chassis came from "Rich in Michigan". Searching on Pirate, I found cvwindows and it sounds like my chassis was built by Rich Schumas. I'm looking for a bit of information on it and I was hoping you could provide contact information for Rich or pass my contact information on to him.

Here are pictures of it: http://www.classicbroncos.com/forums/sh ... is+sort+of

It used a TJ grill/hood and appears to be black or blue. I was told it was setup for a 5.0, C6, and Altas. It's a rear radiator setup where the side tubes flow coolant. Not sure if this helps....

I want to know what motor mounts he was using...off the shelf, custom, etc. I can make em, but it would save me a bit of time if I just threw the engine in there and started on the suspension. My chassis is using the chevy style mounts (leaf spring bushing style). Also, I'd like to know the basics of what he had...wheelbase, suspension #'s, what he would have changed after wheeling it...maybe I can improve that stuff so I don't have to redo it later.

from here: http://www.misfitoffroad.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=6079

it worked awesome in moad. Just a guess but I'm thinking they were custom mounts.

I'm sure as more people chime in you'll be able to get ahold of rich.

I'm lookin forward to building it. i have a D70U and D60 kingpin ford sitting under it. I need to figure out the suspension #'s, but I think I can get 110" out of it...need see what Rich was running, though. I have a 5.8L and C6 to stuff in it. I'm planning on putting a stak 2 or 3speed in it. It looks like he was running 40's but I'm hoping I can fit 42 rockers under it. Anyway, thanks for the help. I scored big on the chassis!
