Due to the complex tube chassis and suspension systems used in race cars, standard production car bodies have to be sliced and diced before they cars can be built into racers. Real Deal Steel has added a new race configuration to their option list to help race car builders save time and money. Bodies ordered in race spec will come without firewalls, floor pans, frame rails, cowl sides dash, inner wheel tubs and other pieces that builders would need to remove beforehand. The cars will retain trunk hinges, inner and outer rockers and top cowl plenum. All exterior skins are 18-gauge steel from Auto Metal Direct and cars can be shipped with the top skin un-welded to ease roll cage installation.

This new body configuration comes with a lower price tag and is available now for the first generation Camaro and Firebird. Real Deal Steel plans to extend the option to 1955 to 1957 Chevrolets and 1966 to 1967 Chevy II (Nova) two door hardtops later this year.
