Does 66 mustang V8 motor mounts work with 62 falcon

I was wondering if the v8 motor mounts on a 66 mustang work on a 62 falcon.
Heres my web page at CarDomain.com

YES.

pay no attention to me, I was searching for something completely unrelated when I found this.

A long long long time ago (circa 2001 or 2002) I went on a junkyard crawl in Greeley Colorado (I was living in Fort Collins at the time) and I measured a bunch of motor mount locations and mounting points in Falcons and Mustangs. What I found was that they were all the same spacing from side to side and the had the same pattern in the shock tower braces were the motor mounts bolted on. What changed over the years were the shape and materials that made up the motor mounts, the early ones were cast iron and the later ones are stamped multi-steel.

Of course this is like 1.5 years late for you (sorry 'bout that)
