32 desoto

In all my searching I feel this is the best site for me. Years ago my 32 Desoto frame had been cut and a Nova rear steer front clip welded on. Never completed. I now have this car and don't know what to do with it. The welding of the clip onto the frame is very ugly and bulky. The tails of the clip are under and outside the original frame. I do not have the original front piece of frame. Any suggestions would be welcome. One suggestion was use a S10 frame.

If it is a full fender car, I'd be looking for another 32 frame. The fenders and front sheetmetal need a 32 frame to fit correctly.

56 Desoto

Sorry Racerray1. I have never come across any parts for your Desoto. In Nova Scotia mother nature has laid claim to most pre 1990. Slim pickins.
