first gen camaro bellhousing

I am looking to do a DnD t56 swap into my 69 camaro the kit I am looking at is a direct bolt in for a four speed camaro. The problem lies in that mine is currently a TH350. Does any one know where to locate a bell housing and the proper linkages that I need. The block is a 350 out of a 79 chevy 3500.Should I just spend the money on a blow proof? Also has anyone heard wether or not the year one crossmember for t56 conversion is any good. Thanks in advance

That is just a standard aluminum bellhousing for Camarp and Nova. 4 speed or 3 speed, it doesn't matter. Do a search for the item on the below web site. If you are lucky you will find a salvage yard near you and you can look at it before you buy it.

If you plan on doing any racing with it, I would go with a blowproof. My uncle's friend only has one leg due to a piece of a clutch going through the floor board and through his leg. Just my .02

Hot Rod magazine (I think) did an article a couple of months ago about a new McLeod modular scattershield that could be used to put a T56 in several different cars.
