does anyone make the the mount that is welded to the frame ?
if not is there a way to find the original position of the rubber bushing ?
My framed holes are rotted out to about 3 or 4 inches!

Subframe mounting plate kit, that's what you need. Alot of the restoration catalogs handle them, including my favorite:

Rick's First Generation (800-359-7717) has both a Subframe Mounting Hole Repair Set (four VERY large washers to be welded to the top of the mount brackets to re-establish the right hole size for the mounts), and a Subframe Mounting Plate Repair Set (six complete top plates, with bolt/cushion and gage pin holes, to be welded to the top of your existing mounting brackets). The #SS-46 hole repair set is $12.95, the #SS-65 mounting plate repair set is $46.95.

Page 2-4 of the Frame section of the Chassis Service Manual shows all of the reference dimensions for all the mounting holes to position the repair plates prior to welding.

You don't have ta worry that much about exact location of the patch washers because the bushings have a BIG hole in them with Big washers so that they center to the car regardless. But is best to mount approx. right. pdq67

Go to a surplus metal place and buy 1/4" plate and make your own repair plates. I did for $5 which gave me enough for probably 3 cars. The plates you order are not worth the money.
