BillToothaker I am looking at some restoration sites for Impala & Chevelle, thanks guys! I have looked at the impala, but the shape of the console isn't quite right and the steering wheel is off- On to the Chevelles~!

I think so Poncho.. I don't think they made a lot of different mounts back then for the 6cyl motors..

I was holding a console just like that one this past Sat.. Talking about installing a 3'' Tach in it.. For my friends 66 Chevelle..

gearheadslife console looks like impala mid 60's
tiller, also, but both could be chevelle parts,,
can't tell by the pic if the rear end has 2 upper links or one..
if brakes are 9x2 drums(rear) good chance it's a body parts, 11" think full sized,, looks like someone had a donor car, and used the rear crossmember for the rear end mounts, etc

NEW INTERIORS The console looks like a 60's chevelle console..As far as the body, That look's to be homemade..

RWENUTS I think you're trying to buy the cart before the horse.
The motor mounts are the least of your worries. Looking at the rest of your pics I wonder how you plan on getting that death-trap licensed for the road.

I will take it back down now that i at least have a year to go by- I went before but didn't know if we were looking for 60's or 70's, I will try an impala first, and a partial part #.

Thanks Again, go through this again when i need brake shoes.

poncho62 Just go to NAPA and ask for a motor mount for a 65 Chevy with a six cylinder....Betcha thats the one....Take that one with you to compare

Motor Mounts

In taking Pictures of the Motor Mount (with my glasses on-should wear these more!) there is a part number on the rubber 37-2404 - some symbol-1-4, Will will search this.

I have attched pictures still maybe someone identify it.

thanks for your input!

Cheers!

1965 c-10 230cid l6 mounts


1979 camaro 250cid l6 mount


maybe the mounts on yours looks like one of these..

iirc the top photo type is called a bisket and the bottom (camaro ) a clamshell

poncho62 I am guessing 64-65 Chev Impala....Seeing as the engine checks out as a 65, I would be leaning that way

poncho62 What is the logo in the centre of the steering column?....Lots like a mid 60s GM to me.

230 and 250 Chevy six were basically the same engine
