Took about 30 mins to make this new bar. I found a old rusty one at a local pick and pull for $5 off a 92 Roadmaster to copy the measurements.
I made mine just a tad heavier.
These things are super easy to make. All I used was a press and a drill press machine with a special bit.
Does any company make these yet?

Stainless will rust if it is in contact with a piece of non-stainless. The non-stainless contaminates the stainless at the point of contact, and it does rust there.

If only they would fit the wagons! Im just going to put a trailer hitch on mine, does the same thing. Up front I can use the Fcar touring brace...Speaking of wagon rear ends. Does anyone know if any of the 77-96 Chevy Bbody wagons had rear disc brakes? Or were they all drum?
Wasn't this "brace" which was on roadmaster sedans more for reducing "harmonics" vs being a "frame brace"?
I would assume beyond buying one you could easily make one and make it out of something "stronger" if the goal is to make a rear brace more similar to the Pro Touring front bar brace, or other home made versions of it.
