Thanks Racer56. I plan on tubbing the Vega after I cut the back end out with the sawzall.

I got a 4 link set up on my 29 Ford coupe and it hooks up really good at the strip, running a pumped up 350 SBC.

I have never owned a ladder bar set and wondering about the advantages over a 4 link if any at all.

There are not many Vega's out there anymore. I finally got a nice shop with most all the tools I need now.
I plan on sub framing with mild steel 2x3 mild steel box tubing. I wont bend the tubing, instead
I will make cuts for the bends and tig weld it together with chrome-moly filler rod. I plan on purging the inside of the tubing with argon when I make the welds. The welds should be much stronger than the tubing itself.

Power train will be a SBC 327 with a turbo 350 bolted to it.
