The engine side 301 brackets used on the GP were also used on B-cars (with 301 and 400) and aren't as hard to find as everyone thinks. You are looking for part numbers 496858 and 496859. They show up on ebay pretty frequently. The frame side rubber mount is readily available as Anchor 2387.

That's a new one on me. If it's true then it will make swapping a 400 MUCH easier. I was lucky enough to get mine at a mom + pop auto parts store a LONG time ago. Since then I have only found them on Fleabay and even then that is rare. The frame holes were in the right spot on my 1983 Bonneville which really surprised me since the 301 was gone after 1981.

It's been a while since I was on here and just saw this thread. I have a spare set if you still need it. I have a 400 in my 81 Lemans, love it.

I can confirm, they do pop up on other body styles too. Just have to be sure of the part numbers. These are the original mounts from my ‘80 Grand Lemans with a 301.
