Marc,

Do you want a bar that can pass tech at the track (provide real rollover protection) or one just for show?

Almost all the ones I have seen installed require some butchering of the interior. But all make the passenger seat area a little more cramped.

They have a street bar that is just a 4 point all the way up to a full cage.

I'm in the process of installing a roll bar in my 73 mach 1 right now. It's a Competition Engineering 8 point bar, however I'm putting it in as a 6 point. So the main hoop, the 2 rails going to the trunk and 2 bars going to the Tinman subframe connector I installed. I am not using the 2 bars that go along the doors. The back seat room with this configuration limits the back seat use. You could install it as a 4 point bar and still have use of the BS. you would need to cut some holes in the rear side panels for the main hoop to go through and 2 holes for the rails going to the trunk. You would still have a pretty good back seat area, installing the 2 bars going to the sub frames would take away quite a bit of your floor space area and installing the 2 door bars would make access to the BS very limited!

Can that be used at the track as well.

71 Grande, lots of suspension goodies. Working on next rebuild.
Every roll bar/cage has a horizontal bar at shoulder level in the main hoop that you would attach your 5 pt harnesses to that a passenger w ould have to crawl over. The back seat is pretty much just for small kids when you add a roll bar.
