There is someone making replacements that use Mustang II or Corvette suspention parts. I can't remember who, but if I find it I'll let you know.

There's a dude in the Pacific Nothwest (WA) named Art Rasmussen that does awesome first and second gen subframe setups based off of Corvette chassis. I understand they're quite pricy though...

Art Rasmussen has passed away. Like i said,
Wayne Due is building the subframes that hold corvette suspension. Look under brakes and suspension threads

Art Rasmussen Design & Fabrication Inc. was the one I was thinking of. Sorry to hear he died. I found it in the August 2000 issue of Car Craft on page 98. It's a good looking piece. Did Wayne Due take over for him or is he doing something of his own?
