Formula Ford 1600 chassis repair

We have a Formula Ford 1600 in for a chassis repair this week. The tubular steel chassis is brazed together which gives it some flexibility and prevents the chassis cracking under stress. We are replacing the two tubes which locate the front of the engine. One of which has cracked and has been previously welded. We will remove and replace one tube at a time, brazing the new tube in before removing the second to make sure everything remains in perfect alignment.

  1. Any idea where I might find a front-half Formula Ford or similar chassis with suspension and body? Perhaps a car with severe rear end damage?
