Ok, its straigt in the middle where the trans mounts to it, then bends up at the ends to mount to what look like brackets that are part of the frame. Is that enough info ??
Oh, the ends ok! Why didnt you say so?? LOL. Nah, just kidding. It must kinda suck to have a newbie with all the good intentions but not much in the now-how department. I jacked it up, rolled under there so there could be mistake about it, and stuck my face maybe 4" from the end. Also eyeballed it really close from the side. It is as straight as I have seen. If there is any kind of angle from end to end, I dont see it. OK? I hope and Glad to help.
Naw...no worries. I was just a little frustrated too. It's my own fault for rigging up a work-a-round back in the day.
It has worked well for all these years, but I am at that stage in the car/project where most of the big things are done and I am trying to make it "right".
So I'm going back thru the car and fixing all the things I promised myself I'd get around to doing, the right way. There's a good reason that people recommend buying the best car you can afford to start out...cuts down on a lot of extra work, once you get to the point where you want it fast and reliable and looking good.

When I replaced the cruiseomatic with a C-6 in my 65 squire I made two plates to move the crossmember back,it will make the emergency brake cables a little too long but I just cut a piece of pipe to make up for it on the adjuster. Supposively a 66 with a C-6 has the needed crossmember but I never seen one and a 67 or 68 crossmember can not be used as the part of the frame where it bolts on has been lengthened and I think its basicly the same crossmember as a 65.
