Body To Frame Mounting Shims

Can Anyone Help Find Some Brand New Shims To Mount My 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie Body To The Frame. The Top Shim Attaches To The Bottom Shim With The Rubber Pads In Between. Surely Some One In The Usa Makes Them Brand New????
I Am From New Zealand And Need To Know Where To Buy Them From So I Can Hurry Up And Put The Body Back On The Frame.
Cheers Guys.

Cheers anyway mate but these are only the rubber pads which i have already have. I need the BRACKETS that hold the BODY to the FRAME. The actual FORD part name for them is BODY TO FRAME MOUNTING BRACKETS. The bolts screw into them.
Thanks for your help.

frame brackets

Hi,those brackets should be part of the frame,if there not there,i think you will have to make your own,instead of screwing the bolt in,use a locking nut.

Cheers boatbob,
Those brackets you are talking about are attached to the frame.
The ones i'm talking about aren't what i would call brackets at all, they are actually a washer with a bit of tube about 1" long attached to the washer. and they have the same on the bottom so when you put them together with the rubber pads they fit inside each other and when you tighten them down the pieces of tube stop squashing the rubbers flat.
I have a complete Ford catalog and thats what they call the original parts for some reason.

Thanks for all your help, i'm going to make them seeing as i can't find any second hand.
I would still like to hear if anyone else has had the same problem and what they did.


KIWI FORD.

i can only visualize what they look like from your description but finding 63 ford anything nos or reproduction will be hard to impossible. that said what you just described sounds just like the body mount kit i just got yesterday, applination is 63-67 corvette, each mount has 2 rubber cushions 2.95" dia.X .50 in thick, 2 steel washers 2.90" diaX .150" thick. sleeve and 2 7/16 bolts, these also come with several shims that look kinda like front end shims they usd on the prod line for slight body variations. i have no idea but since they are of the same time frame maybe mounts were just an off the shelf item or outsourced from an independent manufacturer?? if those are origonal mounts i would think the rubber is shot anyway, mine sure were.

Cheers techron,

Thats sounds exactly like the factory ones that i took off my car.
Where did you get them from?
I have gone ahead with making them, pretty easy really. I have brought about 40 blanks(washers without the hole) that are the same thickness and dia, they only cost $5 for 40.
I will drill the hole in the lathe and weld the tube afterwards.
Let me know where you got your kit, a link or e-mail address would be great.

Cheers.

i got mine off ebay from a corvette place called yogi bairs. i see your in new zealand, you could try online catalogs for ecklers, mid america, or corvette central. i havent actually looked to see if they have pics online but you could try them.

Hey Kiwi,
My Plymouth uses the same set up, the bolts were rusted inside some, so I made my own from thick washers and tube...very easy..
