I ordered a torque converter for my Cruis-O with a 2200 rpm stall on Friday. The guy said he had a valve body from a 67 Cruis-O that would allow me to shift manually from 1 to 2 to D. Something about green dot's or green somethings. Does anyone know if that valve body will work in a 64 case? Thanks in advance.

Wow!!! Did I stump the wizard or what with his question? Can't believe no replies yet.

All I know is that in 64, the pattern was P R N white-dot green-dot L
In 67 it changed to P R N D 2 1
Assuming the trans guy knows what he's talking about , the 67 VB in the 64 case would change your trans to white-dot=D, green dot-equals-2, L=1

I don't have any dots. That's what is weird!! I have P R N D2 D1 1. The car has a floor shifter though so that may be the difference in labeling.

Thanks. I hope to actually get one that's not a car show and that actually shows how much lower she sits. Maybe this weekend. Gotta be getting close to fall/winter down there. How's things going?

From what I have heard the 67 valve body will work,I never done it but I remember reading that if a shift kit is installed a 67 and up valve body must be used. I say go ahead and see how it does. Jeff

Jay at Broader Performance called and said that the box was mislabled and the valve body in the box is actually for an FMX so I guess this thread was all for not. Anybody have a 64 cruis-o valve body for sale? I start a new post too but thought I could start here.

But isn't an FMX also the standard shift pattern? Not the green dot. Or is it that it could be either shift pattern still. I have an MX I got at the junk yard and using in my car now but have a "green dot" I want to put in eventually.
I get so confused on these trans labels, FMX, MX etc.

You and me both! I don't know if a Cruis-O is considered an MX or not. Broader Performance said that the difference in valve bodies is that there is no rear port in the valve body for an FMX. Sure wish I had the dough left to put in a C-6 though.

Well, regardless of the labels, in any '58-'66 Ford auto, after N
comes D2, then D, then low. D2 allows second gear starts, just as "2" in a 67-up does. The difference is that in D2, the trans will eventually upshift to 3rd, it can't be held in second, unlike the 67 -up "SelectShift", which can be held in 2nd until the cows come home . Both types , however, allow for LOW (1st) to be held indefinitely

Select shift is what I was after. Figured it would be better for the occasional impromptu street race.
