Is welding frame of 1937 Buick OK?

A neighbor of mine who builds hot rods said that certain years of Chevys have a frame that is all riveted construction. He says that the frame is designed to flex and added welds will crack.
The welds that the car builder will be adding to my chassis will be to add mounts for suspension, engine, and transmission upgrades.
1) Does anyone if it is OK to weld such mounts on the frame of my 1937 Buick Roadmaster?
Thanks
Mutt
