No, you don't have to go inside the transmission. Figure it this way..It's not that hard to do, just takes time and a little patience. If things go well, about a half a day. If you have my luck, figure a whole day!

Never trust an over 40 Chevy owner association (They have to cheat to win)
Your bio says nothing (nothing that I saw) about what you're doing, or what stang you have, so I'm assuming you have a 67-68:
1. Are you doing a manual to auto converstion or something?
2. Or are you just putting a ratching aftermarket shifter in place of the stock?
In case 1, the removal of the manual shifter is just the opposite of the auto shifter install. There are four bolts that hold the manual unit to the floor boards, and the same four bolts can be used to hold the auto shifter in place.
In case 2, all the aftermarket shifters I've dealt with have been fairly straightforward. The adjustments can sometimes be a pain; just takes a bit of extra patience. Remember tho, this is supposed to be fun
In either case, you will probably have to remove both front seats (or cut your carpet, ick) so you can remove the front section of carpet and get to the bottom section of the shifter (auto or manual). The auto shifters in 67-68 are disconnected from the transmission most easily from the under the car, and both manual and auto are unbolted from the floor boards from inside the car (thus, the carpent must be removed.)
There are four chrome screws in surround the stock auto shifter. These only hold the bezel in place.
Oh, and if you have a console, it's another story

I have a 1966 coupe with the 200ci straight 6. I understand that if you have the 1100 carb with the spark control valve, then you HAVE to have the load-o-matic distributor for the proper pairing/match. If not, then it doesn’t run at peak performance.
I have the spark control valve on the carb...
Since my car is in pieces and I’m going to rebuild the 289, I need to get some ideas on how to “dress” the engine bay. I don’t want to end up with an abomination of blue, red, yellow, black and chrome - so pop your hoods!
I’ll get it started ;)
I have encountered a small issue as of today, I normally check my lights before going out and I put on my hazards, they flash in the front, the hood scoop, the gauges but they aren't flashing in the taillights. When I step on the brake they go solid so obviously my brake lights are...
I am in the process of reupholstering the seats in my 66 convertible and I am considering tackling the job myself instead of paying someone to do the job. I have the foam inserts for the front bucket seats but it appears no one makes the rear seat foams.
What have some of you done in the past...
