Automatic to 4 speed or 5 speed conversion

568 3
I am considering either a 4 speed or 5 speed conversion. Are there opinions on what this may or may not do to the resale of a 66 Driver Shelby. I don't see a difference going from auto to 4 speed, but the 5 speed, while a better drivers choice, throws a curve ball in the equation. Any thoughts?

As long as you keep the original parts your resale value will not be hurt, I should think. If no changes are premanent, and there is no reason that anything permanent should have to be done, you should be fine.

I agree with Kent, but with one more consideration; everyone I've ever known who has driven a 5 speed in an early Mustang has NEVER wanted to go back to a 4 speed or automatic. I think you'll do fine with the swap.

boss1. It figures, I did a search, didn't find anything and couldn't remember where I saw this. Then, voila, here it is. Anyway, I'm thinking of the same swap and would appreciate any information you would be willing to share on the subject. Feel free to e-mail me. Thanks.
