You can check with Hemmings and they might know of something from the resto crowd for that..Otherwise I think you may be up for doing the MII swap..there are several good vendors for MII front cross members and that may be your best bet on that car as the MII solves the parts problem..

And I am moving this to suspension steering forum..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
