Are you in need of everything from the door hinges forward or just the removable front suspension cross member?

I have a good one, but I'm in Florida, so shipping will be a bear. If you can't find one, let me know....

Thanks Norm! any chance you know the weight? I do have my sister in Hinesville GA that I am meeting for the 4th of July in our hometown of Jamestown NY, so "in theory" I have a way to get it if all else fails....

I will see if I can figure the weight. I'm a couple hundred miles south of Hinesville. Fairly easy drive on I-95.

I think I have found a couple on this coast, but thank you!!! One is in long beach CA (down south, but I am going there on the 5th) the other is only 20 miles away. Hopefully one will work out!

Thank you. I think I may have it sorted out. I may have to wait until June to get the parts but then I will not have to pay for shipping.

Thanks for all of the offers and suggestions! I will start a thread once I have all the parts and begin the rebuild.
