The bolts holes are fine but it looks to me like your balance point is way too low. The pivot should be almost centered in the rad opening in the front and same height in the rear.

Agreed. Reconsider your balance point location.
Your car will whip around and be a bear to flip back.

too! I would move the crossbar right inbetween the two bolts.

Concrete blocks look scary, always use them like they are used in a building, that's the strongest way and the way there designed to be used.
Not like that

thanks for the replys. i have the front of the car exactly where i want it. I need to level the car out than re-adjust the rear, which will be bring the pivot point up. i wanted to make sure those 4 holes were adequate before I make my final adjustments. i made this rotisserie on my 67 coronet so its not quite same

Not sure what he bolted to. I always use the bumber boles front and rear.

It may not go any higher but it can definitely go LOWER , the bottom blocks are not in the proper orientation , they can crush the way you have it .
