Need 454 Motor Mounts for 1968 C-10 Truck

The 454 in my recently acquired 68 C-10 is currently supported by motor plates at the forward and aft ends. I'm interested in removing the motor plate setup and converting to a more conventional motor mount setup. Not interested in a dropmember setup as the truck already sits low enough. The transmission is a TH400 and also has long tube Hooker headers. The frame rails are original, but have been notched on the drivers side for header clearance. The lower cross member (below the engine) that joins the frame rails and front suspension is also original. Any suggestions are much appreciated, thanks!

The mounts for a C10 with small block Chevy work fine. You don't need them for a C10 with big block. Check your local truck wrecking yard or Craigslist.
