Unhappy 1955 f 100 crossmember butchered

This is my first post on this forum and can tell there is tons of good info available from the members. I have read a bunch of the threads and have already found out how much I don't know! But, on to my question. I bought a 1955 f 100 the body is pretty solid,it drives and stops pretty, but it has a 400 pontiac GTO motor in it . Well its coming out and I have a 302,c6 to drop in.Now my problem,whoever put that motor in cut out the crossmember that went under the original bellhousing tying the rear of the front springs together. Needless to say the frame is unstable now, WHAT do i do now. DOES ANYBODY HAVE A REPLACEMENT,OR HAS ANYONE EVER FABRICATED ONE?? I tried searching past threads but I'm just learning to use the forum> Thanks in advance for any help!

Where are you located? Welcome to the forum. I haven't seen any fabricated; go to a salvage yard and get one better yet get the entire frame. Mine was the same way after a few years it started to lean to ne side; I replaced the entire frame.

I have one off of a 56 frame (should be the same), has some surface rust but is solid. I can shoot you some pictures by email.

Shoot me an email with your email address to v8muscle at comcast dot net

I took this one out of a frame. Not real difficult, just a lot of drilling and grinding of rivets.
