I decided to look for a new frame, rather than try and fix the one that I have. Darn rats made a hole in mine.
It's for a Firedome. Hopefully I can find one close to WV.

I think you could also use the 126" 1958 Chrysler chassis to widen your search.

And maybe 57 or 59 Chrysler or Desoto ??

Hollander's only lists '58 DeSoto Firedome and Fireflite as interchange on the frames. The Chrysler or '57 DeSoto may work, but there are differences in motor mount locations, and possibly a couple body mounts.,

Wow. That's not much to choose from.
It looks like I will have to repair this one.

Okay, So since I need to repair this frame, I need a patch.
This is the area I need. It needs to be from a big Chrysler or DeSoto, the 126" wheel base.
I just need the lower half of that area.

I have a 1957 4-door sedan Chrysler Windsor frame, all intact, looks like it's never been hit.
Body is already off it. Located one hour south of Boston.
Can send you pics if you like.

You are about 3 months too late!
I had one I couldn't even give away, so mow it's laying in 2' pieces in the scrap pile, and it was solid as a new one.

There is, or was, a fairly complete '58 Firedome 2 dr HT in a yard near me, I got chrome parts for Rosy's DeS resto from it a couple years ago.
If interested PM me and I can give you their phone #, it's located 1 hr N of Scranton PA more or less.

Speaking of which, wonder what happened to Rosy, she was a regular here but kinda vanished about 1 1/2 yrs ago?
