Ford Fairlane

Where can i get a rolling chassis for a 1958 ford fairlane 500?

I am restoring my Dad's 1958 Ford Fairlane 500 for him, but have hit a snag. The old frame was not boxed in very well and has some pretty shotty welds on the crossmembers and rails. Rather than spend alot of hours repairing the old frame i would like to try to find a custom built rolling chassis with IFS and a new rearend. also any idea what kind of prices i will be looking at?

You will need a custom frame fabricator to estimate the cost. These guys aren't very common and don't come cheap, especially for that era. I would estimate $3-6k, just from the pricing of 32 Ford frames, or the Cobra replicator crowd.

It may be a lot easier to start looking for a better frame from the specialty salvage or collector market, rather than specify a complete new frame custom fabricated and built as a one-off.
