you need a setup from a 75 nova or camaro.more years than a 75 will work.

just mentioning, you understand you will need a chevy trans, as well as the engine acessory mounting brackets and more.


What engine is in the Buick at the moment? he B-O-P transmission mount is different from the Chev. Also, the V-8 transmissions are different from the 6 cylinder versions. That may affect the driveshaft length as well.


the original engine was a 260 v8 with th350 turbo transmission. also put on BOP adapter plate to trans bellhousing, just dont know what motor mounts to use to swap 350 Chevy motor to a 75 buick frame

The front sub frame is the same as the Chevy Nova, Pontiac Ventura, Oldsmobile Omega, and Cadillac Seville, Chevrolet Camaro. It is really that simple to find. Just check the parts listing for the engine mount for a Chevrolet 350 in a Chevrolet Nova, and there's your parts numbers. You MAY find that they are the same as the ones used for the 260.
