I have a 1955 235 engine. I believe they were used in cars as well as trucks. Does anyone know if the cars had front engine mounts on the side of the block , or was it below the timing cover like trucks ?

Why? I want to put an Independent front suspension, w/disc brakes & rack and pinion steering ( it comes as a package deal ) under my 1950 Chev ½ ton P.U. The problem is; the forward cross member interferes with the rack and pinion, and must be cut back and a new motor mount fabricated....
