I originally built my own engine mounts however i ran into some oil pan/steering clearance issues... Since the motor has been out I bought the Street and Performance adaptors and hopefully that will help out the clearance problems when it goes back together
Great looking Chevelle, looks like a killer sleeper to me.

Hey, thanks! Im gonna keep the sleeper look for a while.. I have been running 2 very quiet 3" mufflers with dual 3" exhaust.. and then when i want it loud I use www.not-a-sponsor.net electronic exhaust diverters.
eventually however I would like to go for more of a pro-touring look whenever the $$$ permits.. Like this pic:
unreal just what i hope to do are 65 chassis same as 1967 ? what model sump oil pickup etc did you use and are motor / swap mount supplyer on web any info is good, hard to find people with knowledge of this swap here in australia
Hey, I am not sure about the 65 to 67 frame comparison.. However i would think they are very similar. The best place to go for information is Street and Performance... www.hotrodlane.cc they know there stuff with these swaps.. The oil pan and pickup tube I modified and TIG welded myself, however Street and Performance will provide this service as well.. The mounts are street and performance as well.. Hope this helps! Let me know if ya have any more questions
So is that the clutch pedal assembly from the donor car or an old school camaro pedal setup? How did you go about mounting the clutch master? I have to do this in a couple weeks so I'm trying to figure it out. Have you done you harness yet?
Hey, the pedals came of out the 2000 trans am.. We just made our own bracket and mounted the master right to the firewall... using that pedal assembley kinda locates it for you for the geometry to work correctly. The harness that I used was made by Painless and it worked quite well. Requires a 1998 computer though.. Let me know if you need more info!
I tried to use the S&P mounts on my '67 el camino, but they did not work for me. (They sold for almost as much as i paid for them on ebay though!)
I used the stock f-body accessory drives, and the alternator hit the steering gear box with the S&P mount set up. I was also restricted on the location of the motor/trans as I used the firewall and transmission tunnel out of the '98 camaro donor car and needed the shifter to be in the right spot for the console.
I welded my own mount set up on the frame, and used the camaro motor mounts
If you need any pics of the mount set up I made, Just PM me.
I love your chevelle! It is my favorite year too. Good luck.
