Why? It's un-necessary complication.

'53 - '62 Corvettes used a similar mount...Bolted between the block and the water pump with the 4 water pump bolts. Might have been a little less than 1/4". Also they had a flange on top for stiffness.
They tended to corrode where the water ran through them, but I don't remember any real problems with them.
I guess this was GM's answer for mounting a V8 in a chassis designed for an inline 6.

depends on what your building

if you have a gm thats already (by design) set up for a small block chevy, then theres no reason to use these, but if your scratch building a street rod frame then this is a nice alternative

allows for all the header clearance you could ask for and is simple to make

plus some street rods are build without a full engine crossmember, just ears for the factory mounts, which can twist the front frame rails out of shape, but since the mounts on this setup are a meer inch from the rail, thats less leverage on the mount to twit the frame

and oh yea, its a very clean looking design .. especialy if you make it out of aluminim and polish it

It's easier to use the four bolts on either side of the crank snout then the water pump. You won't have any pulley misalignment problems.

Yeah, and use 55-57 Chevy mounts. Cheap and easy.
