No....It's not a Kawai.....I would imagine a plate flange adds stability to the plate, helping prevent the plate bowing higher or lower in the middle. A rocking pin block has a different type of instability than stretching strings of a newer piano.

With the rest of the story... I think it's reasonable to spend some money fixing the piano and see if you like it. If so, keep it. If not, sell it. BTW, have you researched your rebuilder carefully? There is a huge variance in quality of work.
