any comments or related experiences with the install of a monte carlo bar on a 67 six cylinder Mustang with standard 1v carb and distributor? pros/cons? straight versus curved?

I have one in my 67. Mine is a straight-bar though. It really limits my options for an aircleaner. I would recommend a curved one to avoid the same issue. That being said, it really helped stiffen my front end. I had to use a jack and 4×4 to spread the frame. It's amazing how much sag these old cars can get

A while back, I posted pictures of ludwig's Monte Carlo bar, which is an i6 specific unit.
