GLASS PRODUCTS, INC.
This body and panels represent our greatest effort ever. There are over 2,200 hours to present a complete ready to mount race unit. Efforts have been dedicated to have a single style suitable for different chassis, lengths and heights.
Measurements presented are based
upon ground clearances allowed as well as ride heights necessary to accept the
use of large slicks.
Special attention must be drawn to the original bodylines and contours.
Since no two lines on the car run parallel to one another, movement of
front end could present excessive cutting and bodywork.
Upon request we have individual wheel well inserts available for
acquiring any special wheel base configuration.
The windshield has been redesigned to reduce drag by extending the base
forward over eleven inches. It has
also been curved for a rounder side-to-side roll.
The roof has been widened side-to-side and front to back.
It has also been lowered over two inches in order to get the fender tops
taller. The doors have been
lengthened front to back (larger entry opening) and made taller to get the
rocker section down to a more suitable ground clearance.
Absolutely no factory parts will interchange nor will our parts fit a
factory car. This unit is for
racing applications. Factory door
handles might work, but we designed for after market racecar applications.
Hinge provisions are also designed around after market racecar parts.

to bottom of rocker (not ground)
D. Measured to bottom of rocker (not ground) 33.5”
E. This has been lengthened 2.5” and is easy area to widen for relocation of rear end.
F. Based from ride heights, this area has been designed for clearance of a 26” tall tire.
G. Tops of all fenders in these areas
raised extensively to generate room for tires and
even turning of front wheels.
H. Totally reworked to maintain factory look, but also to accommodate tread widths.
I. Basic hood even though stock in appearance has been arched over 2” for actual engine valve
cover clearance. The entire hood pan area (mount pocket) also raised to decrease in radical bubble
(tear drop) factory
design of the front fenders. Similar
rising of panels was performed on rear.
J. As mentioned this area raised or widened for both entry access and to keep rocker panel close
to ground. This area, not necessarily in the rules, but based on funny car applications to keep some
air out from under body 2”.
Since this point is lower, any measurements taken at rear will not be
at back wheel area. Basically the
car is designed with an actual up hill
the entire rocker panel bottom. Refer to dimension “B”.
Our unit was
designed around the following chassis builders desired specifications:
Roll cage minimum height
Rear tire height possible
Rear tread width acceptable
Front tread width acceptable
Front tire height-Pro Stock size
25” (plus 1.5”
Some alterations of this body to accommodate special
problems different from the gentle and
careful application of heat.
