best single write-up on these frames Ive seen:
LOVEfords - 1965 Ford Frame Replacement
if you think yours is bad, click on the 'saving a 65' link below... it was beyond ugly.
if youre looking for a frame, keep a eye on Ebay- there was a N.O.S. one popping up once in a while, dunno if the guy ever sold it or not, think he wanted 500.
has clean Arizona frames, but shipping is high- theres a trucker in here that does a lot of cross country stuff- if you can hook up with someone like him haulin a small load or returning empty, you could save a bundle- keep a eye o this thread:
for in case you find one out west.
be really careful of one from our area- roadsalt exposure combined with the often clogged drains on these frames often resulted in a half inch of salty moist mud eating away from the inside out.
I think Macs and others now carry trunk pans for the 65 too. dont know if 65 floors are available or not, I just slapped a patchwork quilt of sheetmetal in ours
good luck with it-
edit: heres one on Ebay right now:
but its not the N.O.S. one...
