Re: 62 Imperial 413 Motor Mounts?



My assumption is that the factory cast the big blocks the same no matter what vehicle the engine was dropped into. The 
1962  Imperial used a non-unibody setup so a special motor mount had to be made for Imperials to fit the engine in the 
compartment. But the mount bolted to the engine in the same place as the other Mopar platforms, like the 1963 
Plymouth B-body. So my guess is the B-body mount would fit. Maybe someone else has done this same swap. Or call 
http://engine-swaps.com/ and see if they can help.

Thanks,
Gary H.
