Looking for parts help

Looking to see if anyone can help me locate a set of polyurethane body mounts for a 65 Impala convertible? I checked ccp online and called them and nothing. Checked eBay nothing?
Any help is appreciated.

Personally, I dont see the point of poly body mounts. There is no movement once the body is bolted to the frame as there is in steering components. The rubber mounts act as a cushion to the body.

Checking with the two main companies, that I know of PST and Energy Suspensions both show urethane body mounts for two door hard tops only. Do the 65 convertible have two more body mounts like the 64 and prior. I would call these companies and ask. Maybe they could build you a kit?

I don't know if the Chevelle bushings differ dimensionally from the Impala. I do know that they are different than those that are used on the Camaro and Nova.

If you have a drawing of the bushings Energy Suspension can machine them out of a bar of round polyurethane, but then again any machinist with a lathe could do the same thing. Difference is Energy Suspension might want those dimensions to bring another product to market as big Chevys are growing in popularity. Once they create a CNC program they can make the parts on demand in small batches.
