    I recently purchased a 57 2-door wagon and the frame is more swiss cheese than I thought so I have to replace it. That leaves me with just a body and dash to start with. I need to save money at all costs without sacrificing a solid foundation. That being said I was thinking about retrofitting a...

    Hello, I am trying to figure if I have a one-piece "California" frame, or the two piece. I have seen two-piece frames that have obvious, big welds down the center. This one does not but as you can see from pictures, there is an obvious "seam" down the middle. I can also see where there is a...
