Question

Let me ask this, Is the '67/68 offset too?? They didn't appear to be when I eye-balled my NOS BB frame mounts next to my stock '67 SB frame mounts but I might have not known enough to have looked that close!! pdq67

The engine, trans and pinion in my '69 SS396 are all offset 1/2" off center to the pass side of the car. This makes a total difference of 1" from side to side.
