Re: 1965 Front End Susp Damage Help
thats pretty common on 62-65 fairlanes to rot out and break there at the strut rod mount. Car really shouldn't be driven until its fixed, that wheel can go where ever it wants and other parts can be bent/broken without it being hooked up.
Easy enough repair, kit is the more user friendly option as opposed to fabricating something. Just make sure its positioned in the right spot before welding, check and re-check measurements.
Also on 65's- a 65 is just a earlier fairlane with a re-designed "skin"(quarter panels, door, fenders, hood, ect.) and dash. Front suspension parts for a 65 are the same as 62-64. rear suspension is the same too except in 64-65 they moved the leaf spring center bolt back 1/2" to get 116" wheelbase. Floor and trunk pans are the same, original drivetrain options depend on year but all will interchange with the right parts.
