'58 MK IX Jaguar Saloon. 350 Chevy, Turbo 400 Trans, 9" Ford gear, NASCAR style sway bars, Mustang II front end on a home made frame clip.
Power windows, A/C, custom made dash with Auto Meter Antique guages, home made headers. Whew! Lots of work so far and much more to do.

I like that. A question, did you make the sway bar arms, or do you have a source for them?

They came in a kit with the bars. I had to bend them using some heat and a large press to get them to "kick out" far enough. Not sure how they're going to work but I drilled some holes to move the links forward and aft for adjustment. Hopefully, they're not too stiff.

Where did you get the kit?

Stock Car Products.

It came with two different sized bars, the mounting bushings and the arms that you see in the pic.

Thanks. I have made up my own sway bar using Midget torsion bars. Had trouble finding the splined arms though. I'll check them out.
