    This should have been placed in the for sale/parts wanted section.

    I found a K-frame at a pull-a-part by me (I-40 and MacArthur in Oklahoma City)

    Car just entered the yard a week ago. The VIN is "P" (8th digit) for 318 2-bbl.

    And a 40% off sale this coming weekend

    The K from this '85 Fifth Ave should be 99.5% the same as yours - but not looked at car to know if any rust is present. I will say that M's do fair a lot better against rust than F's do.

    I have one but it would probably be a fortune to ship. Where you located? I don`t know the extent of the rust on your frame but in all honesty a skilled welder should be able to make the rusted piece and fix it.

    This is what I'm dealing with.
    The car's frame is in great shape.

    It can be welded, but getting the hole back in same spot can be a bit tricky.

    Getting a bit off topic on this. Monday night, I handed a spare K-frame to Mopar Mikes son, just before bad weather hit Oklahoma City.

    We chatted some, bench raced a bit and his son decided to head out sense it was lighting like a fireworks show, not far away.

    About 45 minutes after he left, one of my trees fell in the same exact location his sons Durango was parked at. I think they said we had sustained wind of over 80 MPH and gusts even faster, not counting the almost 3 inch of rain we got (in about two hours’ time).
    20190827_120229m.jpg

    The White Oak tree was 80” circumference (25.5” diameter) about a foot off the ground. About 25 foot away, the circumference was 54” (17” diameter) where it hit my pickup. My ’97 Dodge ¾ ton diesel pickup – the L/F fender is sitting about a foot lower than R/F fender is, due to weight of the tree.

    The trunk (white arrow) goes underneath the treetop (yellow arrow). Notice the angle of truck vs. the side of garage.
    I guess a good thing he took off when he did.

    WOW! That's not fair.
    Helping out a fellow F-Body guy & this happens.
    We went through this earlier this year.
    Had 3 trees on my house & 2 down in the front yard.
    It's not fun, we have just rebounded from it.
    Not good when bad things happen to good people.
