big block motor mounts

i have what i believe to be a 396 69 ss..the engine is long gone, so there is no way to tell for sure but more things point to it being correct than not..i continue to uncover things i dont understand..someone had bolted small block motor mounts in the car using 6 different style, length bolts. i located a set of original big block frame mounts and when i went to swap them out, here are few things i saw..the small block mounts had new holes drilled in the crossmember to make them new hole drilled for each..there is a reinforcing plate inside the crossmember that the new mounts lined up with..(the small block mounts had one of the upper holes drilled in the edge of this reinforcing plate and only half the head was catching it)..the mounts i removed had a center distance of 2 inches on the top holes..the new big block mounts have a 1.5 inch center distance and so does the reinforcing plate inside the crossmember and the factory hole locations...normally, are the bolt patterns on big and small block mounts identical and did someone simply adapt something non camaro to my car? any thoughts?

Re: big block motor mounts

67-69 Camaro use the same mounting holes for the engine mounting brackets ,be it SBC or BBC. Seems some one wanted the engine in a different location or a different type engine was used.
