This should be like the '50 truck front mounts, on the water pumps.....
...and this should be like the '50 car front mount, bolted to the block between the pumps
In 1:1, to put the truck engine in the car, easiest thing is just swap the pumps and mounts. OR you COULD fabricate frame mounts that the truck engine could bolt to. Either or.
Right off hand, I don't know about the lengths of the respective transmissions in the kits.

Wow! Thanks for the answer and the pictures. I think that I will fabricate mounts for the pickup motor set up since the pickup motor has much better mold detail than the coupe engine( actually it is the old 50 Ford convertible kit engine.) I have the pickup kit to use as reference for scratch building the mounts. Thanks again for the help.
