75-79 ford f150 460 2wd motor mt brackets

I am needing the frame to motor mount brackets to fit 75-79 Ford f150, f250, f350 2 wheel drive with a 460 engine. I realize that there are aftermarket brackets out but, I am wanting the real thing from Ford if possible. I'm not looking for the motor mounts but the actual brackets in between the motor mount and frame.

Junk yard.

Ford Restoration Parts

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Yeah, I know I have been looking and so far a big fat ZERO. That's why I posted here also.

LMC has them, but due to the age, I'm sure they're not OEM, but they meet OEM specs. Why the hard line on originality?

LMC only has the motor mounts but not the brackets. They do have the aftermarket ones but they are $50 more than what I can get them elsewhere. I have read in some of the other forum posts that once you put power to the aftermarket ones they can shear off or pull apart. Several posts also mention the brackets pulling out of the frame. I am sure this can also be a problem with the originals but they just "look" to me to be much stronger. When I look at the aftermarket ones I just don't see the strength in them compared to the originals.

Sorry about that, I was looking at the wrong pic. Didn't see anything in any other site either. I can tell you that it's probably going to be the same bracket from 57-96 if that helps.
