390 FE block in a '56 Mercury

Alright, my question is if anyone has experience that tells them any particular original engine mount works well for a FE block mounting into a Y-block Ford frame, in particular a '56 Mercury. I have an opportunity where I might request to buy some engine mounts at a discount to make up for a shipment of the wrong engine mount for my '55 Mercury which I'm doing everything original on.

the stock ones

50 years ago i did the y block to fe swap and i just used the original mounts. it seems like you either turn them around or left to right but I didn.t have to buy new ones... the rubber on the originals shear off so most replacements have a retainer system build in.
