Oldwood has the Shelby bar in his 69 Cougar that looks nice.

Yorgie, the Shelby style bars are the only devices that look aesthetic enough to consider, but they are may from “integral skin urethane.” Carroll Shelby would surely be astonished to see a plastic strip masquerading as a safety device. I’m surprised they aren’t liable for accidents regardless of warning notices!

All of the Shelby bars that I've seen are steel tubing encased in the urethane skin. I'm not saying they're as strong as NHRA spec bars, but they'd be better than your head for holding the car up from the pavement.
1968 XR-7 Augusta Green, J-Code, 5 litre, Autolite 6100, 5 spd, convertible with heated seats, cruise control and rear sway bar.

BTW, I think electronic ignition is pointless.
