I have a 350 with an old style cast iron bellhousing in my '59. The bolt pattern is the same as the newer belhousings. I have a wc t-5 out of a Camaro. One hole and the front bearing retainer will line up with the bellhousing. I welded and redrilled the other upper bolt. On the bottom I bolted a 3/8 plate to the bellhousing. Then I bolted to 3/8 tabs to the trans and welded the 3/8 pieces together. It's not presentable but I'll get a pic tomorrow.
