mounting engine in t bucket frame

Im building a t bucket and im putting in a ford stright six 200 motor and c4 transmission in it for my drivetrain. I just was wondering can i use the stock motor mounts of a 66 mustang to fit the motor in my frame? Ive never did anything like this last car i used a v8. Any help would be great.

it's possible, those mounts are pretty basic. you will need to fab some towers on the frame to mount them to.

I would suggest you go to Speedway or someplace like that. They sell cross members with the mount tabs all set up. They can either be bolted or welded to the frame.
