73-77 Race Body Shell

  When building a race vehicle you obviously want it as light as possible.  So you cut out the floor pan - wheel wells & inner structure.....So as far as the body all you are left with is an overweight, floppy shell held together with old factory spot welds and body lead.  Our bodies are manufactured from extremely complex molds - which produce a rigid one piece unit.  The roof, quarters & firewall are generally stiffened with the use of internal ribbing.  In addition, your all new glass body can be made heavier or lighter (within reason) depending on your application.   Average body weight is only about 100#'s

As far as body work, you need to scuff off the mold flashing - block sand - prime and paint.  The great part about owning a rigid glass body - is that you'll never have to worry about rust .  Once you apply your paint scheme that's it - just wash and wax.

  Installation is a snap!  Whether you are installing just the body or an entire package, the bodies attach at the rocker panels, tail pan, trunk jam, door jam, and front and rear window jams.  We also offer fiberglass wheel tubs, which can be glassed directly to your new body. (This is done by the installer).

 -
Tilt Front Ends do need the rear fender panel to be cut in order to hinge
   They can be made to slide forward than tilt without cutting the fender, however, this
   depends on the tire size and will involve detailed planning and fabrication on the installers part.
 - The interior finish is Fiberglass texture - coated in black lacquer - it comes without wheel wells.
    Wheel wells cannot be completely attached to the front end as they will interfere with engine &
    firewall component, when hinging.

 - Light Weight Version - is intended for racing applications and does not come with a hinge kit.    
 - These unit generally only weigh in at
approx. 30#  +/- .  

IMPORTANT - Please specify the type of racing that the unit will be used for, so we may build and reinforce your unit accordingly. Units manufactured for "Street Racing" have a heavier roving on all edges to reduce the chance of tearing (under to stress of impact) and usually weigh 10 - 15# more than a Drag Racing unit.  Units manufactured for "Sand Drag" or "Baja" style racing are built so as to be midway between the Street Drag and the Street Race units.
