When I was in HS, the local king of the street had a custom '51 Chevy, hugger orange, with a full on 409/4 speed in it. (Beautiful car but within 6 months the stock frame was twisted.) I imagine the physical dimensions are near the same.

Yep, I'd be thinkin' front and rear clips, retaining the 1/3 of the frame that's under the passenger compartment. A 6-point rollbar could be installed with the B-bar hidden by the side post. That would stiffen the car up considerably.
