Question Looking for lower radiator support 65 Custom/Galaxie

Need a Lower Radiator support bracket/crossmember for a 65 Galaxie/Custom. It is the piece that goes from frame rail to frame rail (like a light crossmember), fits under the header panel and allows lower radiator support L-brackets to be bolted to it. Previous PO bent the crap out of it. Looks like he ran over a stump or something. The support now will not bend easily as I have used a jack under it and lifted the car but it won't bend back. Will not support lower radiator on one side. Any help out there??

I have brackets that I removed on my 66 to put in a mustang aluminum rad. I believe mine we're bolted straight to the core support though....

It's not the L-shaped brackets I need. It is a crossmember looking piece. I will try to get pics. Thanks

Here are some pics. It's really thick metal. Don't know if it's part of the header or a separate part under the header:

That's the lower portion of the core support itself. Someone will surely correct me if I'm wrong. It's been 10 years since I replaced my core support so my memory is a little rusty

If it is not really rusted and just bent, it can probably be straightened. A good body guy could probably fix it right up. Note I said a good body guy, not these modern body shop guys that only know how to swap parts.

In early spring 2014 I'll be looking for a beautiful 1963.5 Galaxie 500 XL 4 speed in pristine condition. This was the first car I ever drove and I'd like it to be the last car I ever drive.
