Default "Saging' Frame? /Motor Mounts?

Speedometer cable and connecting collar in contact with Brake bar - Brake Bar supports to frame have multiple spacer shims on all four contacts - Motor Mounts are original metal/ not rubber. Doors - Hood - Cowl all in line. New to A'ing as an owner/driver. Not a tinkerer - Thanks for thoughts of Cause - Solution(s)/with positives and negatives. Or just continue driving and enjoying. Thanks again!! D

This can result from cracked rear engine mounts. If that’s not it, maybe the frame is bent. There are shops that can fix the frame.

Frame sag is a common phenomenon but very hard to correct with body on the frame.

Get that frame FLAT, and everything fits together sooo much better.

Does your GAV spring back nicely when you pull it, or does it stick a little?
