Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, the Bel Air frame is not the same as the Chevy II front sub frame. You should be able to use standard Chevy V-8 engine mounts and the stock frame mounts for the '65 Bel Air available from your local Chevy dealer. If they can not get the frame mounts, check in Street Rodder magazine for distributors of early Chevy parts.
