Column to floor shift conversion

Hi all,

I just picked up a 65 console. It came with the shifter and i'm considering converting the car from column to floor shift. I've searched the archives and found some info, but was wondering if anyone had completed this swap and could tell me how/what is involved. I'm assuming I have to cut the floor but what do I need as far as pieces and parts to put it together. Is it worth the effort or should I make a plate to block the shifter holes off and be done with it or add cup holders

Bryan

Personally I prefer the floor shifter and converted mine. Do you have an automatic or manual transmission?

Re: Column to floor shift conversion

I'm a backyard mechanic, and I converted my 64 Galaxie from column to floor (automatic) during the 500 to 500XL cloning process.

The only problem I had was getting the correct trans linkage part to support a floor shift.

That was the only item I had to have installed and set up by a pro.

It was well worth the effort.

Re: Column to floor shift conversion

I had a conversion to floor on my 1959 Edsel. Fellow jumped in to begin firing it off, and guess what? It did not start. We forgot to connect in a neutral safety switch and the starter then did not engage.

Don't forget.
