68 f100 auto to manual question

hey guys i was just playin with the idea of swopping my c4 off my 302 in my 68 f100 with a manual trans.

my question, does anyone know what trans 3or4 speed toploader, or t5? what would be the easiest swop? via axle length mainly.

in 68 the 302 was not an option.

any info would be great.

But the 289 (IE same engine) was. That said the trans is probably mounted as it was from the factory, so the question is, do you want a 'car' trans or the truck trans?

The factory 3 speed that would have been offered would have been the same basic trans as a car, The 4 speed option would have definately been the granny low truck trans, which could have been changed out for a car one with a little floor surgery and a shifter. And the 5sp hadnt even been dreamed of yet. The t5 car trans can probably be made to work, or you could opt for the later model 5 sp truck trans.

Really up to you how much work you want to invest. (is this the same truck that got bent up last week?)
