I'm at work now but have info at home from a company Flat-o-matic I believe also in Oregon. Was going to put an auto in my 1953 coupe for the wife but I toasted the engine first. They had a set-up to ran a C-4 and sold kits from Complete trans included all the way down to just the adapters. I'll re-post with better info if this doesn't bring up a web site.

Quick update as i'm home and have info in hand. The name is Flat-o-Products as Zonk stated. The kit is called Flat-O-Matic. The info is a bit old but the Tel# is: (503) 364-6194. I've only got the info sheets as I went late model drive train , so I really don't know any more about them. Good Luck.
