    I have a 65 Dodge coronet that i am installing a 66 727 torqueflite. The mounts are different from one year to the next. I intend to use the 65 crossmember and modify the 65 mount but my mount is original and has a few cracks in the rubber. I would like to find one in nice shape but am not really sure of the modifacations that will have to be made. Putting an old 331 Chrysler Hemi modified. To put in a 727 i had to install a 1 inch spacer/adaptor which my compound my problem so buying a mount that i'm not sure of the mods means i would like the price to be reasonable. Anyone have ideas?

    In my 65 Fury, I used a 1973 Monaco cross menber because it was set up for the newer spool mounts. I used a later style 727 trans, not certain of the year, was likely a 70-74 ish model. If your trans is further back because of an adapter plate, you might be able to get away with a simple flat plate to adapt the trans to the mount.

    I put a 1970 318/904 in my 63 Belvedere beater. It was a Poly/3 on the tree.
    I had to modify the trans cross member and used a 68 A body trans.mount.
    Had to cut out the area of the 63 mount and fit the A body mount in it's place.
    Then welded a strap to mount the 68 mount . It's best to measure the original so the replacement is in the same location so as not to mess up the pinion angle trans to rear alignment.Did the same to a 64 Dart when replacing a newer engine/trans in place of the factory set up. Only photos I got. IMG_2851.jpg IMG_2852.jpg
