cross member

does anybody have a pic of the part of the cross member that bolts in and holds the trans in. also, is it the same as a falcon? my '64 didn't come with one. maybe someone has an extra one willing to sell. it seems like their few and far between around here. thanks, gary

sources

just a little rant if you please. why can't people ever put a link to the sources where they get their parts from. if you just put a name that doesn't mean everybody knows them.

Re: dimension

dimension

i am not sure what they call this area but, could somebody measure the distance from the trunk edge to the bottom of the rear window on a hardtop body. not the length of the trunk, just the short top part. i measured a '65 falcon and i got about 8 inches. would it be the same for a '64-'65 comet? ju...
