#1 and #2 body to frame mount brackets
This a 67 GTO I'm getting ready to do a full-blown restoration.
On the GTO, There are frame mounts just in front of both left and right doors. The brackets are spot welded
near the bottom of the firewall on the outboard side. Some brackets take one rubber mount assembly on each side and most 2dr and convertibles GTO's take two rubber mounts per side in the same general location. Most frames have the holes to install the body mounts on both sides.
Here's my question is there a resource to buy these brackets (some guys call them torque Boxes)? I have found what looks like the correct ones, but the literature does not say they will fit a 1967 GTO. Of the ones I find, most say they will fit a 1968 GTO and other Gm "A" body Cars like the Skylark, Cutlass Chevelle.
Can I go with the 68 version and maybe with some good measurements and some tweaking they will fit the 67
The only other option I can see is getting them from a donor car. I saw a pair on eBay, but they were for the single mount and not the double.
Thanks, I hope someone can shed some light on this issue.
