I'm thinking about buying a mustang near my house with a 302 and a 3spd manual. I've also got a C4 laying around with a stock torque converter and shift kit. So which one do you guys think would be better for a car that would see some action on the weekends and a lot of freeway miles on the weekdays? Both suck in my opinion, as I'd rather have a 4 or 5 speed
. But I'm not rich, so which would be better in the meantime?

Personally I'd stick with the 3 speed. Even though you have the auto trans, do you also have the shifter, trany lines, radiator or trans cooler, kick down linkage (is the carb even set up for this), and anything else that may be required. Keep your eyes and ears open for a 4 speed or a T-5 at a good price. It'll be easier to install one of these if you don't have change everything back over to a manual trans setup.
