Here are some pics of the subframe connectors I built. The main tube is 1 1/4" boxed with 3/16" walls.
They can be either welded or bolted in place... Show more and the floor does not need to be cut. They allow plenty of room for exhaust pipes, very slight line relocation, and hangs less than 1" below the pinchweld seem.
My main concern was the floor and most of the connectors used on Vega's ran through the floor.
I just couldn't bring myself to cut a floor in this good'a shape. So this is what I came up with thanks to alot of suggestions from the guys on v8monza.com.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
Thanx for viewing my page,
The area circled in yellow is where I had to do alittle grinding to the lip on the floor support so the connector outrigger would seat properly.
Circled in red is where I had to square off the corner of the rocker so the connector would sit more flush to the floor. An air chisel with a dull/unsharpened flat tip made short work of this task without cutting into the floor. Show Less
FOR SALE. 72 Vega GT. Would make a good drag car project. The floor was rotted so it has been cut out. The body is straight and alot of the outer body work ... Show morehas been done.
Parts not in pictures: L & R fenders, Grille, Header panel, Headlight bezels, taillight housings and covers, steering column and wheel, instrument panel, front split bumpers, rear bumper.
Also, an S&W Racing Chassis back half goes with the car. I have a lot of other parts to go with it as well.
I'd even be willing to deliver if within a couple hundred miles (i'm due for a road trip anyway). The car is 20 miles north of Baltimore.
I really hate to get rid of it, but I have too many prejects going on and i'm out of room.
$400. takes everything.
