Jim Unger (Jim Unger Racing in Dayton, Ohio) built the 4130 cage, I cannot take credit for that.  He did what I asked (even though it made some things more complicated, such as a dash bar underneath the dash....).  And he made sure every tube, bend, etc was what i wanted before welding. He did a really nice job.  The joint fit-up was incredible and I'm thankful I found him in the area.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

Nice work on the cage to keep it minimally physically and visually intrusive.  The stainless should save a good amount of weight as well.  Love the updates!

thanks.  i'm confused about the comment concerning stainless though.  i think the stainless exhaust weighs about 35 lbs per side. i would have to check my notes.

How about a 72 Ranchero, the Gran Torino Sport seems to now be a lot more popular, than when I was young.

not really much to show for the last few months (still consistently working it though).

heads/manifold are at the shop getting ported/hardware installed.  cam should also be in the works. 

lots of detail work on the body in the last 2.5 months though...

cut off the original roof and installed a donor roof. 

modified the upper and lower control arms mounts, supports, etc. 

modified shock mounts (front and rear).

added tie downs to the suspension (front and rear)

have all brake line brackets located, fuel line brackets located, emergency brake mounts, etc.

finished the roll cage (seat belt locators/mounts, head support mounts, seat back mounts, window net mounts, data logger mounts). 

notched/boxed the lower crossmember to allow a little more clearance for when removing trans or installing engine.

finished the seat back isolation/filler panel (along with filler panels for all the large holes in the filler panel).

sectioned the lower front rocker/quarter area (added about 1/4" tire clearance). 

modified package tray to locate 2 6x9 speakers (and look like it was stock from underneath)

modified kick panels to recess a pair of 6.5" speakers.

fabricated a switch panel, fabricated a seat mount/brackets for a race seat (want to use stock seats until I start to feel a safety concern with the very springy factory seat....)

although the 70-72 Gran Torino's are decent looking, I will leave those options for you to create.
