For the metal parts, I would try Murray Park in Ohio. He specializes in used C-body parts and is a Club member.
Or just post your request for the metal parts on the Club's list server, maybe a club member has spares he would sell to you.
Glad to be of help.
Good luck.

Hello Yean-Yves,


Thanks so much for your quick reply. I am most grateful. I not only need the rubber inserts, but I am missing the entire metal housing. I’ll contact the two people you have referred me to. If they don’t have them do you know anywhere else I can find these? Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

A place called Old Parts Source, in Montville NJ has repros available.

They have an ebay store so if you go on ebay and search "1958 Chrysler front motor mounts" and / or " 1958 Chrysler transmission mount",  the product should appear. 

Engine mounts are listed at $100 /pair and the trans mount is listed at $70,  + shipping.

Other option is "Then and Now Automotive" in MA, they can vulcanize new rubber on your original metal cores.

I bought a trans mounts from them and was satisfied.

Hi quick answer the round  ones in front look worse than they are . A person in Turkey (!) makes the rubbber inserts but in practice some of them seem to have been vulcanized solidly into the shell . As a result of much difficulty trying to change the rubber spool , last time I added two washers to raise up the motor ( they tend to settle ) You cannot see this change , and clean/ paint outside.  . The pin is normally located assymmetric in the rubber even when new. That is not a failure. 
The transmission mount is fairly available —used in thousands of mopar cars , probably all TF mopar 57-61 .

I found both the Turkey guy and mount quickly by google search . JY copied may know specific suppliers . 

Hope that helps .. John

Hello William;


Thanks for writing. 

Rather than have me guess at an answer

let me direct you to two people that are

restoring cars similar to yours.

See John Grady at jkg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I bet they have your answer but if

not, let me know and I'll search further.

Hello Bob,


My name is William D. Hober. I have been a member of the Chrysler 300 Club since 1999. I have a 1958 Chrysler 300D that I am now restoring. I am in desperate need of engine motor mounts and rear transmission mounts. Do you know where I can get these? Do you have them? If you can give me some information on where to source these. I would be grateful.


Best regards,
