Reach on the top of the frame, and see if it's smooth, or are 2 pieces, overlapped.

Yes, top or btm you’ll see a crude weld about every 4” or 5” about 2” long(2 channels welded together). Didn’t matter which assembly plant, they all received box or channel. My son’s ‘57 had a two piece Oakland and my ‘55 has a one piece Kansas City. The box is a little ‘nicer’ but is not inferior whatsoever.

Not the best pic but here is my Janesville WI built ‘57 on the lift showing its seamless (at least from the bottom or top) frame. As you can see a “seamless” frame is totally smooth and clean from this angle.

Sorry but L&T reproductions sell the side mount kits as ("seamed or seamless")
2 separate kits to do the same job....so I want to order the correct kit they sell to make the job go easier.....just sayin~

Now that you know the difference between the one and two piece frame
you can now order the correct kit.
