The car would fit into Super Comp or brackets, probably not a good choice for Comp or TD. It's more like how you fit the cage and how well it matches the rest of the chassis. The seat lay back angle is also a big factor. Take extra time and look for chassis fatigue and cracks especially in the frontend area. Do not buy if the chassis does not have a NHRA chassis certification tag.

Hacksaw gave you some good advise. Must have a current tag!
You need to be comfortable in the seating position. Need to see
how you reach the pedals,chute release,and shifter. Find out
who built the car. I have had three dragsters and quite familair
with them. Have any questions just fire away.
Good Luck
Jimmy
