Replacing motor mounts

Whilst under the car working on the replacement drivers side floor pan I noticed that the drivers side motor mount was missing a bolt from mount to block. I checked and it’s the same on the passenger side!

From what I could see the holes did not line up properly, either because they are the incorrect mounts or the chassis is twisted. I suspect its the later…but am hoping for the former!

As soon as I have sorted out the floor & trunk rust I will look to replace both motor mounts. This can be done with the engine in the car by doing one side at a time, supporting the engine from below. It’s concerning that I have driven the car like this for 5 years!

From what I can find on the net, I should be able to buy 2 x 2257 motor mounts which should ensure everything lines up.
