I was wondering who the go to shop is to fabricate a 1400 class chromoly tube chassis? How much would it cost to build a legit 1400 contender? Are there a lot of sponsorships available for 1400? Thanks for any info!
I want it fabricated around a 67 c10 cab. I like the old school look of itSponsor-ships aren't handed out like ribbons at the fair.... Tell us WHY you want to have a 1400 chassis fabricated, as opposed to, say, buying one....???
Yes I was wondering who could build one. I'm not looking for somebody to build me a chassis as a sponsor deal. Just wondering who's good at it? Sponsors I was talking more tires, lights, brakes, etc. As for the series I'd like to run the BITD and SNORE. I'd be willing to build just to BITD specs rather than just SNORE. If you know what I meanGreen, i dont think he wants a sponsored chassis, he wants to know what companies are available to sponsor a 1400.
For.the OP, what series for 1400? That number if different in some series.
I guess so. I've seen people build class 1400 f100 trucks so I wanted to kinda go the same route but with a c10Because you are talking about having it built around a c10 cab I'm assuming you mean a 1450 truck? Steel cab door slammer? 1400 in bitd is trophy truck. Sorry, "trick" truck.
Yes I do have a lot of homework to do and it's probably a while before I even start this. I just don't really know where to start. Only thing I know is the cab that I want it to be built around. Is desert rangers a forum or a group?The nature of your questions leads me to think you probably have a lot of homework to do. Just curious, what's your budget? There is no 1450 class to race in BITD so the only place you're going to race a truck like you've described in BITD is Sportsman (1800). SNORE is the 1450 battleground of choice if that's the kind of truck you're set on.
I'd guess you're better off buying something and tweaking it to your liking versus paying someone to build you a truck from the ground up. I'd be willing to guess ballpark you'd be looking at $50k and up in order to have a reputable fabricator build you a truck from scratch. You can probably find current 1450 trucks for sale that would at least get you in the game for $20-$30k but even those probably aren't "top 10" competitive in the larger field races.
You should check out Dezert-Rangers if you haven't already, that's probably the best source of first hand 1450 type info.
Dezert Rangers is a website/forum just like this one. A lot of the 1450 type guys post there, lots of fabricator/shop guys from full blown fab shops to garage builders. Good to have thick skin if you plan on asking a bunch of questions there, but probably the best source of info you'll find for the kinds of stuff you seem to be interested in.Yes I do have a lot of homework to do and it's probably a while before I even start this.

Actually I would not recommend barrowing money to buy a race car or any fun thing for that matter.
I am going to presume that your young and in your twenties. And that's ok. If I am right about this don't take it wrong we have all been there. I am now 44 and and I remember the younger years well.
Ok. So if I am correct about you age and you barrow money to go racing lets face it, you will also max out your credit cards too. I know all about how it happens. It always for one final thing but it NEVER ends. The cold truth is if you can't pay cash and upfront, you can't afford it.
What no one well you is that depending on the class the cost of owning a race car can be only 1/3 to 1/10 of the cost of racing it. In other words, if you can't pay cash for the car, how are you going to pay cash to race it?
My advise is to get with a local team. Help them out, earn a co driver spot and do it all for free. If you were in so cal. I would invite you to help me.
Please understand, if I am correct about your situation, I am not trying to crush your dreams. I am just trying to help one person out form not committing financial susicide. I see people do it all the time with debt and it haunts them for decades to fallow.
Lastly, I strongly recommend that you pray to God the father, Son and Holy Spirt about your plan. You never know. It might be his plan for your life and if it is, there is no stopping you! Only one way to find out.
