74 nova 350 into a 74 buick apollo,

Hey every one first time here, I need a little advise about and engine swap im doing, I m try to drop a 1974 nova 350 into my 1974 buick Apollo and Im running into a little problem with the mounting I assumed the mounts where the same as they where both GMC of the same year and the apollo is basically a nova clone but as I found this is not the case, Im thinking that if I put nova engine mounts on the frame (asumming they will bolt up) It would be a quick fix but Im not sure what type of mounts I should get ( this is my first engine swap) also I think the nova engine and buick trans will bolt up with an adapter plate but that also might be wishful thinking, anyways any help info or tips would be great

Use 74 Nova frame and engine mounts. Adapter will work on trans. Should be fairly straight forward swap. Many similar have been done.

No, all SBC mount bosses are the same since 1958.
