A buddy has a '67 mustang, 3 speed manual. We're going to swap the 289 for a mild 302 soon, and he would also like to put in a 4 speed toploader. Is the trans swap pretty much straight forward? I was more concerned with the mount location and shifter location than anything else.

Yes I did this swap on my 68, just unbolt the 3 speed and bolt in the 4 speed.About the only problem I had was the speedo cable is on the opposite side so I had to reroute it, its tight but it did reach.You will be very happy with this swap.

Did the same swap on my 67. Clutch and driveshaft worked, but I couldn't get my speedo cable to reach. Other than that, real easy swap.

Thanks, guys. Looks like I'll be putting in a 4 speed and mild 302 in his '67.
