What is a Classic Car Ash Frame used for?

A classic car ash frame is a structural component found in certain vintage automobiles, particularly those manufactured before the widespread use of steel frames. It consists of a wooden frame made from ash wood, which is known for its strength, flexibility, and resilience to moisture. Ash frames were commonly used in the construction of classic cars due to their lightweight nature and ability to absorb vibrations, providing a smoother and more comfortable ride. These frames were often used as a base onto which the car’s body panels were mounted. Despite advancements in automotive technology, some classic car enthusiasts still appreciate the craftsmanship and authenticity of vehicles with ash frames.
