    Its largely a true ladder frame.Two straight rails with cross members.Would be pretty easy to duplicate.Bet any good rod shop could make one for you.

    You can get a '31-32 frame, but they are different. Can't you delicately remove the Corvair, make repairs to the org. and keep going? It seems like I just saw an org. '29-30 frame somewhere for sale. I'll see if I can find it.

    they cut so far into the frame installing the front end that if I try cutting it out there would only be about 1" of frame left at the top

    If your a good welder it wouldn't be too hard to fabricate a new front section,and weld it on.The 55 Chevy Gasser guys do it to get the look they want.I would think any Rod shop could help if you don't weld.

    all the front fenders and splash aprons bolt to the top of the frame and the bumpers bolt to the end of the frame not a easy piece to make. that is the reason I need a frame or a framefrom fire wall forward

    It’s not rocket surgery....it’s more in the ‘blacksmithing’ realm. Shouldn’t be too difficult to duplicate, especially if you could find a frame diagram with measurements for reference...or a stock frame from which to make a template. Look for a competent fabricator, he doesn’t have to be a hot rod guy, though that’s a plus, just good with metal.
