Those parts are available. I want to make sure you are aware the the engine is frozen. Also. I am not sure we can pull apart the engine and transmission. How much are you willing to pay for each?

You will need to arrange shipment.

aunty norm,

It should be fairly easy to find a top iron bracket from something other than a Chrysler that could with a little modification fit, look, and work as perfectly as the original Chrysler piece did.

Even the lowly model T Ford used some brackets very similar to that. The problem with the model T brackets is that Ford did not build all their bodies themselves. There were quite a number of outside body suppliers that provided the bodies, and several different companies that manufactured the top irons for those bodies. So seeing what one or a dozen different bodies had for brackets does not mean one has seen them all. I know I have seen some that were very close to what you show.

The angle of the bolt hole brackets and the twist down the arm mean these brackets had a right and a left. So the question becomes, do you need one like the one in the picture? Or the mirror image of that one?

The model T brackets would be a bit different out on the end where the top sockets fit on. Most brackets from other cars would likely need some alteration. The needed alteration should be easy to do, may require a torch or some minor welding. And it likely will need to be rethreaded if you want an exact match.
