I'm doing a 4 speed loader conversion on my 64 500 2 door fastback. The car is a factory Z code car, 3 speed manual OD on the column, 3.50 open rear. Being a brand X guy until I bought the Gal, I'm not very well schooled on what I would need to do the conversion, and any snakes that are involved in the process. I was curious to what I would be able to use as far as what came from the factory on the car...bellhousing, etc? I have been talking to a lot of old rodder's, but I keep hearing many different takes on the conversion from shafts to shifter placment on a bench seat, and everything else involved in the job. Before I go cutting a hole in the floor I'm hoping someone out there can set me straight on what I need to do in order to do a complete conversion. Thanks for all the advice and help.
The later toploader cases have both bolt patterns, so you can use them in all years. If you want to run a late starter with your 64 bellhousing it will bolt up fine but you need to change the ring gear on the flywheel to a late model. It will fit.
