    Hey all! I have a 1970 Buick 455 that I’m going to get rebuilt, along with its th400. It’s then going to get placed into my 1967 C10 2wd. What’s the best method of getting the engine to bolt into the frame? Currently has a 350 sbc in it, but was thinking of using a set of the pictured “towers” as the stock Buick mounts look like they’d use the bolt through method over the stock chev truck pad and stud if you call it, of the sbc. Am I on the right path?

    Probably have to wait and see what someone who actually has done this swap has done, but I think they used the big car(think Electra, 225, LeSabre, etc) 455 frame mounts and stock 455 motor mounts to do this swap into a c10 truck.
