Convertible roll bars
#1
Does any one have pictres of a 71-73 convertible with a roll bar?
I am getting to the point where I dont feel safe drag racing mine without a roll bar and a proper seat belt/harness.
Also if there is a vendor that sells weld it yourself kits I would be interested in that as well. I have seen some at Summitt racing that are listed for hardtops.
I know a hardtop would be better for racing but I have grown fond of the convertible.

I would thing using one for a coupe or hardtop would work. The kits I have used were generally a little tall in the main hoop. Door bars and the back brace and rear bars are generally unfinished and long.

Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

These guys fabricated one for a 69 Firebird. I would love to make one which looks similar to the Shelby convertible one...some day.

The issue of Mustang Monthly with Jack Rousche's Car Collection shows a '69 or '70 vert with a roll bar in it (not very detailed, but might be enough for your needs).

More food for thought...
