You should use some sort mid engine support. Like a mid plate. A friend ran the same car with a two four 283 and a stick. He couldn't shift the the car until he made mounts to the bell housing like the tri five passenger cars. This happened even with a Lakewood bell housing. Looks like a very nice car and brought back memories of running a car like yours.

Yes the mid mount was in place early on, you can see it in the photos if you look closely.

The 58 is sitting, I walk by it almost daily. I stumbled onto a 62 barn find in my neighborhood. Been sitting for 38 years. Stripped it down to raw glass, and found more than I bargained for... (been hit a few times)... I had to redo all the repairs. Then learn body work and paint... Just finished final sanding, and looking to paint it myself also. Then I need a few months to make it road worthy. Everything that had fluid is replaced ie fuel, brakes, water. It was a mess... but what a journey



This is what I found once I got all the paint and plastic off... both front fenders were this bad... and the nose as well....wow, what a fight I had


This is what it looks like now after learning the body & paint trade, just before Red Paint. I figure the 58 should be a piece of cake after this 62 mess
