lokar makes a nice floor shifter for these trucks. usually a car floor shifter sits to close to the seat in a truck, lokar makes them where you can move it way forward and they offer a longer truck looking lever. it's not cheap.
http://www.lokar.com/product-pgs/shi...s-shifter.html

if you have a floor shifter for the 350, it will work you just won't be able to go into L1 manually. L1 with your stock rearend is probably only good for about 3 mph. you can probably modify it to pull back a little more to find L1 by grinding the back stop off a little or by changing the length of the trans lever a little. just make sure your detentes and neutral safety switch still work.

you never did post a pic of your panel. or make your presence known in the 55-59 chevy truck thread double spank

you or the previous owner had to cut out the big x-member at the bell housing to install the th350. this x-member also hold the weight of the cab. so any x-member should be fabricated to keep the twist out of the cab mounts. twisty cab mounts will cause the front of the cab to drop making it hard to line up fenders or fit the doors.

there are a thousand ways to make a x-member this is mine. fully boxed frame and the tubes running to the cab mounts for support. i was unable to add the 2nd tube on the drivers side due to interference with the hydroboost. the 700r4 mount is on a piece of 2x2 angle that bolts into the center gap.



i doubt if you have your panel body off for this job. but any reinforcing you can do to keep the cab mounts from sagging will help.

still waiting on pics

700r4

Only way that I can get the tranny up there is to put converter in between fly wheel and crossmember that is why you see the converter hanging there.
Here is pic of the truck from this summer

B&M bought Hurst and they quit making 4-Speed Auto shifters.
B&M Quick Silver, Mega Shifter & a few others work with 4-Speed Autos.
There're still a few NOS Hurst Pro-Matic II & V-Matic II on Fleebay from time to time.
A used V-Matic II sold for $180 a few days ago.
