And here are several completely different chassis designs to go under a 427 Cobra.
There are many different ways to get a frame under a car. In the old formula one days, they'd design the suspension, then lay out the location of the brackets that would hold it, and then connect the brackets with chassis tubes.
Building a custom model chassis is similar. Decide on the wheelbase, and ride height. Decide on the suspension design. Mock that up, and start connecting things with chassis members, bearing in mind how 1:1 cars are done.

ALSO, Marcus Jones shows some of his great frame scratch-building work on this thread. It's worth looking at and studying...........
