My sons 62 has swing outs. I don't like them. Every time I get in, my clothes get hung up on the bar. My 64 has a straight bar with no swing out. But the wheel is removable. I like it way better.

^^^ That dash is as cleverly and neatly done as any I've seen, ever.
And better than at least 90% of them out there.

Mine is a little different. It was certified to 8.50 but that has expired.

Thanks for the pictures and ideas. I'm thinking I will go with the swingouts since I will want the car to be legal wherever it might race.

Would something like this be legal? https://www.ballisticfabrication.com/collections/brackets-tabs/products/i-d-tube-clamp

I wouldn't mind a removable bar when putting around on the street.

I like them welded in vs. the swing out style because of the added rigidity to the chassis.



I also did not go with swingout because I wanted the bar to help stiffen the car. And I dont have a curved bar as its straight and I can slide over it real easy. But I did have to remove my armrest. Ron
