3-Speed on Column to 700R4..questions

I have a 63 impala with a 235 straight 6 and a 3 speed manual on the column. I am wanting to swap to a 700r4. I will be keeping the straight six for a while longer but want to do the trans now. I am going to be getting an auto column so I dont have to bolt a shifter to the floor. I want it to look stock. What sort of problems will I have.. I know I will have to get a flexplate, linkage to tranny, drive line length, and output shaft..

questions..

1. will my crossmember work in factory location? Will factory crossmember work?

2. what size tranny cooler will i need..

3. will I run into kick down or vacuum problems with only having a rochester one barrel carb?

Any other info would be greatly appreciated!

Not sure on some of your questions BUT, you will need to fabricate the TV cable bracket on the carb. Not going to be easy but can be done. The TV cable (NOT to be confused with a kickdown cable) MUST be set properly so you don't fry the trans first time out. There is no vacuum connection on the 700.

Are you sure you have a 235 cid engine? the old 235 engine (as I recall) did not have the common chevy bolt pattern bell housing .

A 230 cid inline 6 engine does have the common chevy bell housing bolt pattern.

A '63 should have a 230. '62 was the last year for the 235 in passenger cars.
