    Probably, considering that it's hand built and the gauges/etc. weren't made operational....

    not factory. the IROC's had the "wonder bar" which was a front end steering brace that the rest of the F-bod's didn't get

    IIRC they had one but it was tiny as hell. i've got an adjustable panhard bar on my Formula after we lowered it, really helped on hard corner exits with much throttle :o
