455 BBB in my 58 Chevy

Would anyone know if there is a big difference in motor mounts between a 327SBC (in my car now) and a 455 Buick?

I can get my grimey paws on one with a tranny for a decent price and I had always liked the torquiness of the 455.

Will I have to do extensive mount work to wedge the 455 onto the chassis of my 58 Chevy?

Any help would be appreaciated.

ThanX
Frank

The motor mount attach locations are different on the two different blocks. How much fabrication you'll need to do is unknown, but I doubt they'll bolt up.
