Shifter ?

I'm planning to put an aod tranny in my '65 fastback. Will my original shifter work with the new tranny? Thanks.

You should be able to use the '65 shifter but you will need a special rod from the shift lever to trans which Windsor-Fox sells. You will also need a TV cable (TV=throttle valve?) which I think Windsor-Fox could help you with too since you must have this adjusted just right or the AOD will quickly become DOA.

Hope that helps,

With the 66 and others I suspect.
I have the dot with a circle that allows it to start in low and shift up to second and third.
Or I put it in the top position and it starts in second and shifts to third.
Can I control the OD shift? Meaning can I keep it in third (drive) say under 55 mph if I wish to keep the RPM in the power range?

Dean, Thanks for the info. The reason I asked was because I just bought a new shift lever, bezel/handle kit and was thinking if it wasn't going to work I'd better return it quick. Once again, THANKS...
