Here is part of the reason I am doing this replacement. First the car had major damage in 1972 and was rebuilt by for a high school student's graduation present in 1973. The person who did the work did not replace the frame and should have done so. To get the car in alignment it required prying the cam bolts till they bent and locking them down in that condition. Not a good thing. The car drove pretty good considering the mess the frame was in. It also had rust on the Left rail close to the rear attaching point, also not a good thing. See the next photo for more on that.
