1963 Trunk body mounting locations MIA

Tonight I made the discovery we all dread. What I thought was going to be a simple body mount repair in the truck lead to discovering much more of a problem.

3 of the 4 body mount locations in the truck are completely rusted away. The two behind the rear wheels and the passenger side rear most mount just in front of the rear bumper. It's so bad the right side of the car sits an inch closer to the bumper!

I attached a couple pictures from "Rod Shop's" beautiful white '64 build to show the specific areas.

Two questions...
1. Can these parts be bought or must they be made?
2. How can this be replaced without lifting the body completely from the frame?
