I wouldn't call them "rare", but they are a bit harder to find than 2-piece ones. I have bought several of them and I'm going to look at another one soon. They may be rare in Australia though!!! ;)

Thanks Chevynut, how much do they go for, when you can find them in the states. Ballpark figure. I"m after an original one Thanks again Brad.

I've sold them for $300 but usually see them around $500. I wouldn't call them rare either. I didn't care when I built my car so I used the seamed frame that was originally under the car.

They put them under whatever came down the line next from what i can tell. I have a 4dr sedan out back that has a 1 pc. frame under it. Frames will run from 250.-2,500.00. Just depends on who had it and how proud of it they are.

None of the convertibles had seamless frames. They were all 2-piece frames with the large x-member in the middle. As far as I know all other models could have been built with seamless frames. I know I have used them with and without the extra HT mounts, and I have a 56 210 4-door sedan with a seamless frame.

As far as price, I have bought bare seamless frames for as low as $600 for three of them, or as high as $400 for a rolling chassis with front and rear suspensions. Most of my C4 conversions have been on seamless frames, but I have depleted the supply at two of my local wrecking yards :frown:.
