Pilgrim are justifiably proud of their chassis, both design and strength. Following Pilgrim’s Mk1 Cobra Replica in 1997, which was built on a ladder frame chassis, we very quickly learned our lesson and, unlike many other kit manufacturers, promptly swapped to the much stronger, and far more rigid, box frame semi-monocoque design. This means that if you manage to park with one wheel on the curb, the flex in the chassis is not so great that you can’t open the doors.


At Pilgrim Motorsports we take your safety and welfare as one of our major priorities when developing and manufacturing any parts used in the build of our cars.
The need for change coincided with European uprising concerning the safety of cars in the event of side impact, and the birth of Volvo’s revolutionary side impact protection system which was first seen in 1991. You can note that Pilgrim have two steel bars running down the entire length of both driver and passenger doors.
The changes mean that Pilgrim now offer a semi-monocoque chassis with serious side impact protection at floor level, double side impact bars through both driver and passenger doors which are connected directly to Folded steel uprights on the chassis. If that were not enough, the 1.6mm fluted floors welded to the inner chassis rail act as a cushion in the event of an accident. In a nut shell, that equates to a combined 8mm of galvanised steel which flexes and gives in a way that leaves the passenger compartment well and truly intact. Two layer of 600gsm Glass Matt, resin and a dollop of gel-coat simply cannot compete, and that is only the side.

Deformable Crash Structure

Take a look at the front of our chassis. Note how the angles of the bottom rails have been carefully designed so that in the event of a head on collision, the entire front end of the car folds up, forcing the engine in an upward direction by way of the engine foot plates, as opposed to through the bulkhead whereby you could wind up with a few hundred pounds of V8 on your lap.
Steel bulkheads offer further protection, and just to make sure it does not rust out from under your feet, we have made it the norm to galvanise our chassis’ as part of the build and value
added package.
British and European standards

All our chassis’ are built on site by highly experienced welders using certified materials that conform to all British and European standards. Constructed on a tried and tested jig, every chassis produced is identical and guaranteed to meet the demands of every day driving
