Default 700R4 Transmission Mount

I'm sure this query has been raised before, but I need to open a new thread on it.
I have a split frame I'm using for my '55 Nomad project. It has been sand blasted and powder coated. The 350 sb has been mounted and the new Sanderson block hugger headers are clearing everything nicely including the Borgeson 600 steering box.
The headers are shorties and the collectors are not positioned perfect, but OK. My problem is with the 700R4 tranny mount. It secures nicely on the inside parts of the frame, but it obstructs the path for the exhaust pipes.
I used a different mount when I installed a similar tranny on one of my '56's, but it had to be modified to mount on the bottom side of the frame allowing passage of the exhaust pipes along the inside of frame.
My question is whether there is a 700R4 tranny mount that will bolt on to the bottom side of the frame without having to be modified?
Any ideas before I buy the curved support from Summit?
Bob

Looks like a job for A 1ST gen or early 2ND gen Camaro crossmember. If it was mine I would just pull one out of the pile and use it

either of the afore mentioned units work very well. what you have currently is a poor choice and looks like someone just thru something in there with no regard to where the exhaust would go.

That cross member came as part of a kit I bought for a 350 tranny. The guy installed it because it was what he had available. He is the one who brought it to my attention that the mount would make the exhaust pipes hang to low.
I know there's one from Summit I can use by modifying it.. I used it on my '56 with the 700R4. Using an "H" pipe will create a tight fit.

Why buy something that needs modified when there are readily available parts that fit.
