the elusive chassis concept

From a website glossary:
"Generally, chassis refers to the frame, engine, front and rear axles, springs, steering system, fuel tank. In short, everything but the body or cab and fenders. Because most modern automobiles (apart from trucks) do not have a separate chassis, the body is sometimes called the chassis."

Nowadays with regards to unibody (integrated frame and body) vehicles, the manufacturing term "platform" is frequently used instead of frame or chassis.
