Decent start

May 06, 2011
Fit the frame ok, obviously will need some modification if you're using anything other than a small block chevy with their cradle mounts. Easy to modify to fit my needs (after a little reworking they work just fine with a 500 ci Cadillac motor). May be a little too low for retaining the stock steering components.
Pros:
  • Works with cushion kit
  • Easy to modify
Yes, I recommend this product.

Modifications to this bracket may be required to mount a small block in your 1950 that already has a Mustang II suspension.

You inquired about using our motor mount number 1353273 on your Chevy pickup and these are actually the frame mounts for the 49-54 chevy car. They are designed to be used with the front cradle mount on the motor under part number: 1356023 and cushion kit number: 7209314. You could still use the last two items and fabricate the frame mounts as needed. Another option would be part number: 91018040 which would require matching the brackets to your frame and welding or also part number: 91018031 which you notch and alter to match up with your frame, weld in place and use either the stock side engine mounts or an optional polyurethane mount. One more option would be kit number: 7204771 for the later pickups and you would need to modify these to work with your narrower frame. Just one of many ways to approach the project.

These mounts will not fit a '50 Chevy pickup. Our 720-4771 could be modified for this application, or 916-18012 + mount cushions 910-18012 should work as well. The transmission mount crossmember 916-28904 + cushion 910-18016 should be a pretty good bet as well.

These frame adapters when used in conjunction with the appropriate engine mount and the bolt through cushion kit number 7209314 allow swapping motors into your 1949-54 Chevy car. Currently we don’t offer frame mounts for other manufacturers vehicles of similar years but if using on a GM vehicle these would be a good starting point but will require some modification.

We apologize but mounting location of adapters for the 49-54 Chevy cars to accept a big or small block are not available and up to the builder to mount in the location front to rear that fits their fit needs.

These frame adapters were designed with an average street car engine in mind. If you are dealing with a 700 hp big block then you may want to strengthen them up a bit.

The frame cradle is 2 1/4" wide on the inside to fit over the frame rails.

These frame mounts fit over the frame rails on your 49-54 Chevy passenger cars and do not bolt to the factory 6 cylinder mounts. Then use engine mount number 1356023 for your 350 and cushion kit 7209314.
