Smile auto trans to manual

I have a 67 Camaro that is a automatic & I want to change it to a 4 speed. Can someone tell me what car to look for that I can swap the parts from to make this work?

any muncie 4 speed and most saginaw will work find a bellhousing from any small block from middle 60's on and a flywheel for small block [you didnt say but assuming it is a small block] if it is a 400 or stroker motor flywheel is balanced differently buy new cluch preasure plate throwout bearing and new pilot bushing as auto trans doesnt use one go to year one and order all the clutch linchage parts and tunnel housing shift plate and shifter boot if needed and dont for get tab for frame weld tab on frame by installing cross shaft and align every thing level and straight dont have to be perfect just as close as possible [you can have this done with the auto still in car as the cross shaft bolts to the engine] get a shifter.. if you have a power glide or a 350 trans u can use the same drive shaft.if you have a 400 trans[yoke is diff and shaft is shorter due to longer trans] find a drive shaft from same generation can if you get lucky and have an M22 it has a 400 auto trans yoke most any drive shaft shop can make a drive shaft call and get estimate as prices vary most shops cant balance in shop but can send one off you could also get shaft at junk yard with right yoke and have it cut this is a easy swap i have done same swap in my gto several times

All i have to say is if you do it, make it look good..find or order the stamped steel hump for the floor-it really does make a difference when you casually mention the car was an auto..I did this swap in a 65 skylark from PG to M21 and ahh..it works for me!
