73 GTS transmission conversion

Purchasing a 1973 GTS with an automatic transmission. Trying to see if there is a way to convert it from an automatic to a 5 or 6 speed without using the stock pedals and bracket. A guy named 351cid did it on here and was wondering if anyone else here has done the same conversion with success.

Re: 73 GTS transmission conversion

Sure is $$$
change bell housing, depending on block bolt pattern
for manual trans. then (Z) bar, then transmission.
Probably need to modify the transmission support
location
As for the pedals. Fabrication
look at Hot Rod mags, they sell two and three pedal
setups.
Then you need to modify the floor, if you don't have
a floor shift already, if you do then again some type
of fabrication
