It doesn't have to Specifically for a 360. The brackets are the same for the 304 and 401.
I wouldn't go as far as saying the aluminum doesn't hold up. I have 4 AMC V8 engines 2 304's and 2 360's the factory PS brackets are holding up well. I'd say its more of the care they get from the owners, than the part failing.

Sorry none are for sale.

Part of the problem is they aren't even aluminum. They are pot metal, so whatever mix of scrap metal that was available the day they were being poured went into the pot. Some will be stronger than others, but it's not usually a part that fails. As Bill said, some prior owner probably wailed on it trying to get a belt tight.
