Let’s face it. There are maybe dozens of “cheap” engine storage cradles on the market. Some of which if you looked at them cross-eyed without even an engine on them, they’d collapse. But you have a lot of hard-earned cash and work in your race engine, why not spend a little more when it comes time to store that engine or have to transport it somewhere? Why not have an Engine Cradle which won’t collapse?
At DRC we’ve been building Engine Cradles for decades, all built in our shop using quality materials. Our Cradles have been used by some of the best engine builders in the country to not only store engines but also transport them to their customers. The Cradles are available to fit Chevrolet big and small blocks as well as LS engines. In addition, we have models to fit small and big block Chryslers along with 2G and the 6.1 Hemi engines. The Cradle base has provisions to mount a set of optional Front Motor Plate Arms when used with an engine having a front motor plate.
Each Cradle has the provisions to mount a set of caster wheels; also available as an option from us; and threaded holes to store bolts used to mount an engine to the Cradle. The cradle also can be both shipped and stored flat which saves space when not in use.
