I am going to install 460 385 Series into a 1971 Torino in place of a 302. I am having trouble finding complete sets of motor mounts. Will the frame pads have to be redrilled for the 460/429 mounts? Since these cars came with 429s will it be a simple bolt-in or require a lot of extra work? Any help or advice anyone can provide. will be greatly appreciated.

Not sure if you already know this yet, but.......................
The bottom motor mounts are the same part number as the 351 Cleveland. And you can find those all day long.
I'm doing this same swap ('71 GT) as we speak with a 429 SCJ I used to race back in the day.
