All 1959-1969 blocks have 2 bolt holes for the engine mounts. Spacing is 5 1/8". On the 1970-1979 blocks there are 5 holes, the 2 earlier type, and 3 additional. The later 1970-1979 blocks will fit in the earlier chassis. The 1965-1969 blocks will not fit into the later chassis except 1971-74 Ventura, 1970-74 Lemans/GTO. The 1973-73 blocks only had 3 holes drilled, but have the five bolt bosses and can be drilled to fit.
So, should bolt right in with no problems or need for mount adapters.
