Workhorse vs. P-30

This question is for people that have owned both chassies new. Are the Work Horse chassies (W-20 & W-22) really a lot better than the P-30's. New compared to new. Think back, were you really impressed with the difference? Don't need to hear about the brake problems, that has been well documented.

Can't tell you about the W/H chassis other than hear say which I will not get into. I can tell you the old P-30 was a major PIA. It handled badly, emergency brake set up was an abortion. It was not a stable platform at all IMO. I had two of them and they both had the same kind of problems. The 454 was a good enough engine, if you religiously took care of it. It had a relatively short life span by today's standards. I am now a Ford man and very happy with them.

I had a P30 chassis and it was in now way as good as the w22. The brakes didn't lock up, but when you had to make a fast stop, it felt like you were accellerating. You had to fight to keep it on the road all the time, it was worse in a breeze. The 454 had bad overheating problems and ate up headers and plug wires.
