Does anyone know were to get solid body mounts? I am looking for them for my 75 Chevelle. Thanks.

Not sure where you can find them sir. But unless you're not going to be driving it on the street I would not recommend them. You'll feel every little rock or bump in the road.

What exactly are you after? There are other options rather than a solid that can work well. And if you are looking for body stiffness, I would look at the frame before body bushings.

I am building a mostly strip car with a 10 point roll cage that will be welded directly to the frame. So I don't want the body flexing separately from the chassis.

Poly mounts will be fine.  The cage will stiffen the car up. Make sure the rear bars go down to the upper spring pocket to support it.

I have not even been able to find a company that makes Polly body mounts that say they will fit my year chevelle. All I have been able to find are rubber replacements from OPGI.

I used 68-72 convertible Chevelle mounts. Not sure if they make poly for that gen either but it might be worth a shot.

Thanks for the information. Will any 68-72 mounts work or just the convertible ones?

Count the number of bushings you need and compare them. The only difference between the coupe and convertible was the convertible had 2 extra bushings at the firewall. I just replaced them on my 70 SS and all the bushing holes in the frame are the same size. All the bushings are the same size except the very last 2 in the rear. But if you got them for a convertible, there is a convertible addition kit that gives 2 more.
