1961 Impala Sport Coupe - Chassis Swap

Just purchased a 1961 Impala Sport Coupe that I am planning a full resto-mod on. Not thrilled about building on the X-Frame foundation. With that said any recommendations on an aftermarket chassis?

Plan is a crate LS3 connect and cruise, 4 wheel disc brakes, and air ride system.

Appreciate any and all feedback.

There exist aftermarket full frames offered by Chassis Works (Chris Alston) and Art Morrison amongst others.

https://www.artmorrison.com/59-64chev.php

They runaround $21,000 or more depending how you want it set up.

You could put a Gen two or Gen three Corvette frame under the car (one won the Riddlers Award about two or three years ago), but you have to cut out the entire floor pan and make a new replacement one for your self as no one offers a floor pan pressed for this combination ready to weld in.
