Motor Mounts

Hey anyone know of motor mounts for a 68 302 Convertible,[has the 67 style brackets] I can buy from auto store, Just looking for a stock mounts for a daily driver, Don't want to spend 200 for the adjustable ones. I also have a set of 68 coupe brackets I could use, but not sure how that would work.

if you have old mounts you could just pin them and they would be better than new

If you want to pin your existing, here is a quick how-to I grabbed awhile back when I did mine.

Yes, all 67 289, all 68-72 convertible 289/302/351, and 70 BOSS 302 used the C7ZE insulators.

The Mustang Barn sells them. They are the only source.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

I just received my mounts from Dan last week. They look good. They have a jig and cut/weld to make the C7ZE mounts. I think they're $190 + shipping.

I have been putting a clutch, rear main seal and up-pipes in my Ford F-250 4X4 Diesel and have not found the time to install Dan's new mounts. The mustang is my parts go getter.

I have owned two 67 mustangs with the same problems the mounts will fit if you pry them into place than the driver side last 6 month before it rips because of the load.


On my present 67 I redrilled the frame mount to the proper angle, there are templets on this web site, now my 289 just drop in like it should

I agree, way to much money for mounts. On the other hand, they fit. They will also be the last mounts I buy for my 67, hence the reason I bought them.

What do you have against pinning the ones you have? Cost almost zero, will last forever.
It's pretty much that or spend $200 to do it the "right" way.
Assuming you don't want solid mounts.
