Post Early GM column shifter & 700r4


I am new to this site so I'll apologize now if this question has been asked before. I have a GM column with auto shifter that will be installed in my 56 pickup. It came from a vehicle that had a 350 trany which is what I was going to use. However, I have decided to install a 700r4 instead. So my question is will the shifter on the column have enough have enough movement to shift the 700r4 through all the gears? It seems like it should, but I was hoping someone would there could provide the answer without me doing the ole trail and error thing that I'm so accustom to.

I think that's the shifter you need, but if it isn't they'll steer ya to the right one.

Your column will work, Only thing you'll have to change is the shift indicator. You'll need one with a overdrive on it. There's alot of street rod shops that sell them. they have screw on's, glue on's.
There's no differance in the play with the shifter. Just you indicator does not line up.
