Schumacher Creative Services--the makers of engine swapmounts--announces they now have mounts for putting a Hemi engine in '62-'65 B-Bodies. You can take out that poly or big-block engine and have the Hemi car of your dreams. The poly spool-mount will withstand abuse at the track, and the durable insulating properties make a good idea for the street. Complete kits feature laser-cut and powder-coated brackets, polyurethane spool inserts, and grade eight fasteners. TTI headers are required for the swap, and in some cases, a Milodon oil pan is also required. Schumacher Creative Services; (206) 364-7151; www.engine-swaps.com.
