No, the braces are purchased separate from the pans. Also, If you buy the half pans, see if the toe pans are included. May need to purchase these as well. My floor pans stopped at the toe pans.

Floor pans

I just replaced my floor pan on my 56 Nomad from the toe board all the way back to the tail pan. Most of the time the toe boards are in good condition and don't need replacing. I used the floor pans from Cars Inc. and found them to be very good as they fit perfectly. Using the two halves is the best way to go if you have a good sheet metal guy. The braces are not included and are costly but, considering that the braces make your car structurally sound, don't skimp on the extra dollars. The braces are all available and should be replaced if rusted. You also might look closely at your inner and outer rocker panels as they are probably rusted and could easily be done while the floor boards are out.
