  3. How bout a early Mustang. See alot of those in cars or just walk the yard and pick one out that looks good and make it work. Thats more of a challenge and IMHO more fun anyway.:)

    I will be doing the same thing in my 55 Plymouth so I have some interest here too. My trans is a 727 but same concept. What about an early Barracuda or a later Duster or Dart with floor shifter. Most of those had 904 trannies and shouldn't be too hard to use.
    Keep us posted if you are successful and hopefully someone out there has done this.
    Nice car by the way.

    Look for a postal jeep. They are using chrysler trans in those. Used one in a 47 dodge, only had to shorten the linkage rod. Might be a little bulky in your application but this ids hot rodding and it can be easily modified.

  6. i would go with a mustang shifter aswell cheap and plentiful

    all performance mopar stuff is pricey and rare and of course everybody that has anything for them thinks the junk is gold
