I have seen cradles on row52.com and copart from time to time.

A Riviera or an Aurora front cradle for your year Riv should work, ask the yard to double check the Hollander (or whatever lookup data base they are using).

There's more choices for the rear than the front because of front suspension revisions.

all is well now!sorry no pic's,my mech was able to weld a plate on the cradle.he replaced all the cradle mounts ,transmission  mount ,front and rear motor mounts  ,and he mentioned that the tranny mount was the the most time consuming. btw 4 out of the 6 cradle mounts fell apart when he removed them and only 1 bolt had to be cut off. thanks for reading! cheers 3gears
