I'm hardly ever in here so this is a rare thing, but I just noticed the engine mounts looks exactly like small block MoPar & I haven't seen that on any s.b. GM or Ford... Is it just me who thought of this? (I remember being surprised that my 318's mounts were located just above Josephine's holes where the original engine used to be.)

Many of the Chrysler engines had the same or very similar mount locations/designs.
I've got a 57, 392 Hemi engine in my garage, same mount design.

Okidoki, thanx for that info, I always noticed a few Chrysler corp / Studebaker technical similarities.
