Try Performance Years, Year One, or Ames.

I have seen pedestals and mounts on E Bay from time to time. The B body setup is different from the A bodys so shop around.

I believe you can pull the mounts from a Pontiac powered B body and use them as the chassis were all similar. Chassis from 1965 up into the what? 1980s? Can't remember when they changed again but late 60s to mid 70s for sure.

60's b-bodys had a ton of sheet metal changes, and I'm not well versed enough to know if and where that relates to chassis changes. I imagine it's a lot like any other GM product and it's very much unchanged for a long period. That being said, I'd try 67 400 mounts for a Catalina. They're like $6 on rockauto.com

Ditto the Catalina. That's the "short wheelbase" version of the B-body, like Impala, Bonneville being longer. You will need the frame "pads" as well as the motor mounts themselves. '65-'70 should fit fine. Ames sells the pads for the A-body, but I don't know about the B.
