    There is a whole 440 line and there is alot of interchange,,the frame I posted could be a transitional frame as you can see the Eelco/CR frame mounting plates and no scatter shield

    So its interesting that all these old frames were gas welded,,I wouldnot have thought gas welds to be strong enough

    Wow, for under $500 you could have a roller chassis, just add welding and rear tires/wheels. Awesome.
