Go with STROUD they can be packed while drunk and still come out perfect --not so with others--call them direct talk to Mr Stroud rare these days

Here's one on a Nova at my friend's shop. Same type of setup I plan on doing.

And yeah, everyone says to use a Stroud chute!

This is from JBMopars Duster build up from a few years back. This car has so much cool stuff happening, hope he doesn't mind me posting these. He is an excellent fabricator. Have not seen him post here for a few years.

Anyway, he put this bar between the rear frame rails with a tube sticking out rearward through the rear bumper. The license plate flips down on this car. Duster filler tube is on the left rear quarter, Dusters don't normally have flip down license brackets. (at least mine doesn't) Pretty slick!

IIRC, the fill tube on an early B body is behind the flip-down license plate bracket. Maybe you could figure something out.







And then...

Great pics guys.Is through the licence plate area the ideal spot,can it be higher or lower??Would through the glass bumper be kosher?
I like my licence plate penguin

Bottom line Al, you need some sort of support bar with a tube sticking out the back for the chute mount. However you execute that is pretty much up to you.

This is RVW's '64 Plymouth from B Bodies only.

The only thing that needs a solid permanent mount in the anchor cord. The actual chute pack itself just need something to carry its weight. Does not have to be elaborate or heavy.

I was thinking that a "trailer hitch" type mount for the lanyard under the valance and some tabs to the trunk lid with quick pins for the pack. The cable is something else to think about...

Thanks for the clarification. Light and simple are key words here regarding the car in question.

Are the two methods I posted overkill?

No. The whole deal as one unit is cool. I just hate drilling holes where they shouldn't be. That Duster is killer!
