Hi and thank u for your time. I am thinking about doing a trannie conversion in one of my 66 coupes from a three speed to a automatic so my wife can drive it. She refuses too learn too drive a stick and if I dont do something soon, she wont let me spend anymore money on my cars. What type of automatic trannie should I put in the car and would the floor shifter line up in the hole that is already there for the manual shifter? I have a 289 in the car by the way. Any and all ideas would be great. The car is a little beefed up and has posi in the rear end.
I believe the stock shifter for a automatic is positioned the same as the 3 speed.I would stick with the c-4 or go to the aod overdrive if you do alot of driving.many choices available starting at 600.00.
