On to the actual mounting of the engine and trans. I'm sure somebody makes a mount that will drop the motor and trans into place. I will take the contrarian point of view and suggest some ways to do it.

Here's a crossmember that accepts stock-type Chevy motor mounts and bolts or welds to the frame....

Uses these rubber mounts...

Or these polyurethane mounts...These may transfer a little more of the vibration of the motor to the frame/seat/your caboose/steering wheel.

Here's another mount system that may work with some tweaking. I have used this arrangement on a few cars. Works out sweet.

Here are the instructions....

Here are some stands that will work with the stock rubber motor mount. Just trim/cut the stands for the location where you want to weld them in....

Maybe this arrangement would work for you. These are AD Chevy frame adapters....
