The other trans mount thread finally reminded me to ask this question. I've had this Dart 330 since 92,
and thought it was a little odd when I first saw it then, but hadn't made it a point to research it or look under other 62's to check.
Though I have other 62's, they have the usual trans mounts.

Question. Was there an early coil spring trany mount in 62? This thing has always looked factory to me.
It's not pilot car early VIN #,... but it's in the low 500's.

Edit: Dang pic is upside down,... try'n fix.
Edit II: flipped the pic & loaded and still upside down. So be it,... I'm done. Lol.

That looks like it was made, but not from the factory down twocents

That was the type that was on my 1962 Plymouth when I bought it. The car was 5 years old at the time and was a July build.

Never seen that before.

I wonder what was the intended purpose was vs rubber?

Not knowing the actual design, a coil only resists motion effectively one direction, seems odd to me.

Same setup as on my 64 300. there is an upper mount that bolts to the trans and seats the top of the coil spring. the bottom of the coil spring seatds on that mount and there is a thru bolt that slides thru the lower bracket and screws into the trans mount thru the center of the coil spring.

On my 64 the auto trans bracket was not the same as the manual trans bracket.

'62 B-bodies used both the spring mount and the traditional one-piece insulator. Spring mount was usually used with the 318 and the one-piece with the Wedge and the /6.

I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

Thanks Sniper for the flip.

Thanks guys and John for the print, thought it looked factory. Looks like mine may've been a 318 car.
It had a 440, with STR intake w/ 6bbl lid and carbs when I traded a tube chassis s/b Duster for it.
