    I’ve got an Oldsmobile Cutlass F85 – 1963 – V8 215ci – automatic trans
    My lower control arm (left side) is broken and all the replacement parts I can find are from 1964’s and after.
    Do you think it could be the same?
    Do you think I can use a part from an other car to replace it? witch one?
    Where can I find it?
    Thank you for your help

    Try this guy. I have purchased a few items from him. He knows the 62/63 front end.

    The 62-63s are a completely different from 64 on. I broke an upper control arm once, notice how weak they are around the fixed bearing. Welding some material around them might avoid outright breaks.
    good luck, Bruce Roe
