Just as said, old Y just died, and i have just rebuilt 302 with C4 in garage....what motor mounts to use, and how about tranny, do i have to modify crossmember heavily?

You can use'63-'64 Galaxie 289 motor mounts and the trans mount on the trans should work. If the original trans was a Cast Iron Cruiso you can probaly use the stock crossmember with little modification, the 2spd Fordomatic one will probably require some mods. I just did one in a '59 about a year and a half ago and it was a fairly easy swap. The frames from '57 -'64 are virtually the same.
