Just an update. These are available shipped from Germany. They took about 3 weeks. I have a feeling they are "new old stock" from the Cold War era as mine were labeled "Made in Western Germany". But at least for now they are still available. $75 each. $150 for the set plus shipping. I think my total was $165 for the pair. Sure beats almost $400 for a set of the newer ones. I'll post an update to Guy's thread above with any install issues, tips or tricks in a few weeks. Guy said it was a tight fit.

wow never saw those before
how wide is the area where the bolt goes through,
Or how much longer does the bolt have to be to use the thicker mount

MrMerlin, all this is documented in Guy's original thread along with installation procedures. See this link listed in post #8 above. He details his experience using the '78 "big" trans mount in later cars.
