I built one of those, in about that time frame, or maybe a few years
I made a jig to bend the soft metal sections. Using the end as a template I pencil marked the curve on a scrap piece of lumber. Got one of the mechanics in the factory where I worked it on a do all saw (I wasn't allowed to use the saw).
The rivets on those sides were gigantic - maybe 2 scale inches +.
