Last night I was reading through an article on the AOD swap and they mention that with a kit, I can use my old shifter for the AOD and that the Overdrive will just be the "Snow Gear" position on the shifter.

Where's the Snow Gear on a C4? I know it's supposed to help the car start moving in icy conditions but what's its position on the shifter?

You may not have it on your 67. The snow gear was the NON green dot drive. The trans would start off in 2nd gear. A lot of the auto from that time did that.

Oh, okay that explains it. Thanks, I was sitting in the car this morning playing with my shifter and couldn't figure it out. LOL

But now I wonder how it would work swapping in the AOD and keeping my old shifter. The current shifter has 3 Drive positions but the AOD would obviously need 4. Anyone else care to enlighten me? I'd hate to think the shifter would sit in a "limbo" position between N and D.

I have a 91 Mustang Gt AOD trans and it had a shifter that had only 1st the D then OD then N. So this is a 3 postition shifter. You won't need a 4 postition shifter. The GM AOD have 1 2 D OD.This makes it realy nice because no one has a clue that you have an AOD. These also have a lower 1st gear than a C-4.

Denver is correct, although the od is 4 gears the shifter has only 3 detents in the tranny..1 d and od. Once your aod is installed you will put it in D or 3 which ever your shifter bezel has.
