727 pushbutton linkage

looking into getting the right 727 torqueflite big block. Need to get linkage for the pushbutton controls as this will go into a 1958 Chrysler Imperial. Can I get the linkage off a car and attach to a newer (late 60-76) tranny, or was there a special bracket that was on the oldies? I'd really like to keep it pb. I know Lokar has a "through the floor" shifter, but pb is part of the charm that I want in my Imperial.
One question closer to the truth,

The Torqueflite transmissions for the pushbutton controls were different than the ones with regular shifters. There was no linkage set-up to get for them. They were cable operated. You will need to get one from a vehicle that was pushbutton controlled.

Imperial Services offers conversions to run a late-model linkage with the push-button controls. I've never used them, but I hear they are extremely slow on the turnaround.

They don't list the shifter conversion on their Imperial page, but it is listed on the C-Body page, so you might give them a call.
