Default Question on 63 - 67 motor mount vs 73 - 87 motor mounts.

So I’m going through a LS motor swap on my 85 but ran into a small issue I’m hope isn’t a big one.

I’m looking at tubular motor mounts perches..

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1963-67-Che...a-280665c38b3d

But they only list they are for 63 - 67. I called the company and they said they don’t have any for 72 to 87. They said they’ve never measured so they wouldn’t know if they would fit my 85 but played it safe and said no.

From looking at their video and the bolt holes and basic frame compared to mine. I don’t see why or how it wouldn’t fit.

I’m hoping guys here could tell me if there is a difference of frame pitches/engine mounts on a 85 from the previous generation?

Below are photos of my frame, and the older frame from their install video. The hole locations and frame perch look the exact same. Especially when they tell you to modify the frame for the years they do make them for to begin with.

I was going to try to attach photos but this site only allows tiny useless ones to be uploaded.

I also saw a video of a guy who used these on his 68... And had no issues.

I really think these are semi universal with some slight hole modification. Because his 68 looks like my 85 as well and his 68 isn’t listed on their site either.
