The '61 front crossmember doesn't even have the dimples for the sway bar. Anything can be done, but I would say it's much easier to start with one that at least has the dimples.
For the rear, the difference is between 3 and 4 speed crossmembers as far as I know, the 4 speed variety has the notch for transmission clearance.
