I believe that the Sedan Delivery is a Tudor with a Rear Door. If the frame is a boxed version of the original measurements, the original running board brackets should work. You could install them by drilling holes in the frame, installing sleeves, and longer bolts, nuts and washers.

To install sleeves, simply drill the holes on the outside wall to the outside diameter of the bolts to be used. Use a piece of pipe, or tubing that will fit over the bolts. Drill the inside wall of the frame to fit the tube thru and butt it against the inside of the outside wall. The tube can then be welded at the inside wall, to hold it in place, then grind the weld smooth. You will not loose any strength in the frame rails, and will have the strength of both rail walls to support the braces. The tubes will prevent the walls from pulling together when the bolts are tightened, or the running boards are used.
