1965 Skylark Chevy Swap

After I finished highschool two years ago I bought my skylark and I know the little 300 v8 is tired. So I recently bought a GM crate 350 H.O. to swap into my '65 skylark. I've read on this site and have been told by people around town that this swap is fairly bolt in. I'm ready to drop in the motor, but I need to find the correct frame brackets. I talked to the tech guys at Summit racing and they told me to find any pre 1972 small block chevy frame brackets out of any Chevelle, Nova, Impala,etc. and they should work.

Yearone sells frame brackets for 1968-72 chevelle (Part#FM36) with small blocks, but their tech guy told me that these will not work on a 1965 A-body frame. And they don't sell frame brackets for 1965 frames. So it seems like I'm getting conflicting information from the two companies on what will work?

Will the frame brackets sold by Yearone work on my 1965 A-body frame with my crate motor?

Any help is much appreciated!
