1968 Cutlass Convertible Top Frame

My frame broke in the middle and a small opening about the size of a fist has formed on the pass side. One of the top crossbars over the middle is bent too.

My question: is it worth fixing or should I find a completely new frame?

Does anyone know who fixes convertible frames in the Dallas Fort Worth area?

If I need a complete new frame, where do I look? Do I buy reproduction? Are used frames structurally sound?

I just need some advice.

Thank you!

Rhett

What broke in the middle? The header bow?

Generally the side of the frames are pretty rugged. The header bows rust out. They make aftermarket replacement header bows. I would place a wanted ad here for the cross bows. Those are easy to replace.
