62 crossmember repair or frame swap

I am looking at a 62 full size wagon however the front crossmember has been butchered, These look integral to the car structure. I am not sure if I should try to repair it or look for another frame?

What other years interchange with 62 ford wagon frame? I haven't had much ford experience but these late 50' to 60's are growing on me.

I tried looking the forums but couldn't find anything specific. Thanks David

that looks like a good way to rationalize purchasing an aftermarket full front suspension.

You just need to locate more of a frame than you need and trim to fit with precision, then weld it together with the same amount of precision. More than likely it will be better than new.
