Roll cage for a 67 Fairlane GTA

Can anyone point me in the right direction on roll bar selection?
I will be running a blown 514 and I need some advice on the proper cage and where to find one for my fairlane.
I plan to remove the back seat in leau of a nice stereo setup and the roll bar.
I have searched the net for someone that make a roll cage for my car but I have come up empty.
Can you guys help?
Thanks,
Perry

I don't think Fairlanes are popular enough where you're going to find an off the shelf rollcage, probably have to go to a local race fab shop.

But a custom built one will be way nicer..

Perry,
I purchased my 14 pt. cage for my 67 Fairlane from S & W Racecars.
They have a listing for a 10 pt. cage with conversion for 14 pt. #11-3569.
Some of the tubes you will have to cut and renotch which is normal. They have a website which is swracecars.com or you can call 1-800-523-3353
ext. 112 and ask for Don Scholl. If you tell them that you are a member of dragraceresults.com they will give you a discount. I think that you will find thier prices are pretty descent.

John

Sorry about the misinformation, I stand corrected.

I have done the "prebent" rollcage for a fox body Mustang, be ready to do a lot of fitting work. But in the end, it sure is a LOT cheaper then a custom job.
