Can you discuss which gas method you are using? What type of
filler rod? If you are brazing, what type of flux is used? How tight
and clean do you get the metal before brazing? I ask because
your spots and rod both have a yellow-brass color which makes
me suspect you are brazing. If so, why did you choose brazing
over welding?

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Yes brazing , i am using acetylene-oxygen. powder flux , clean to bare metal with wire brush or sanding disc.
did that because the car came from factory with yellow spots , so i thought i should keep it that way .

I am pretty sure the big-three manufacturers all used ERW
(electric resistance) spot welders for body assembly. The
only gas+flux soldering process I believe they still used
in the 1960s was the leading done at the roof/quarter joint.
Otherwise, Ford didn't have time for brazing or soldering.

If you found evidence of brass brazing, then I suspect the
car was wrecked and repaired using that process. I've never
personally seen anyone use brazing to repair vital structural
areas like frame rails and floor pans. That's why I was curious
about your methods.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Brazing the front frame support only . All other spots will be might wealded . I am sure that all panels are original. No signs of any repairs. Except for radiator support .

Looking good! I too was surprised to see some brazing work going on...glad you welded everything else in place...my 65 outer cowl panel had a spot of brass on each w/s corner area but none elsewhere in the cowl. Rock on!
