    Don't know about these...but I tried a pair to put the 426 Dodge in my '40. The motor sat really high. Ended up making my own. Would have had to beat the firewall up pretty good. But I am thinking a 302 and C-4 would use up a lot less room.

    I made a similar pair for the 5.0 I started with in my '36..those look a bit longer than mine, but I had boxed the frame...I used Thunderbird mounts, not "traditional" mounts on mine.

    Thing is, if you have the ability to modify the chassis for a 302, then you have the ability (I'd think) to whip up a set of mounts for the engine.

    If you use those you should also use a mid mount. Long ways to span from the front of the engine to the rear of the tranny otherwise. I like side mounts better.
