I have a 65 Bonneville and would like to put a chevy engine in it. Any suggestions for motor mounts or adapters. Would like to talk to someone who has actually made the swap. Any help appreciated.

In my past builds I've just made my own mounts using square tube and flat bar stock, and use the factory clamshell mounts.

If you have to make the entire thing, including the rubber mount portion, this video has some good ideas as well:

If you're looking for a 'bolt on' or kit solution I can't help with that.

If you need a BOP to Chevy bellhousing adapter, they are widely available:

You might also have luck searching under the other B-body cars (impala, Bel Air, Caprice) for stuff that would work, sometimes adapters and brackets are marketed specifically for the popular nameplate but will also work across the platform with little to no modifications.
