Picked this car up from a local guy who raced it as is bone stock SS
Sorry guys yes I’m about to cut up a bone stock daily driver
Plans are to build a Sportsman/Pro double duty car
Small block
TH350 with brake
Any rear stronger then a 7.5
Index of 13.49 to 11.49 so I’m shooting for a low 12sec build
I have a new 10 point cage came with a parts car that is long gone
I gutted the interior and sold it
So I’m going to install the cage in this project
Deadline April 1, 2022

Last I knew, you don't "need" a roll bar for a 12 second car, just FYI. Anyway, nice car, good luck and have fun with your build!

The cage is going in to stiffen the chassis
It’s always nice to have a little insurance when a 9.0 car is running you down in the other lane
