Floor Shift Dynaflow

hey all
i've got a '56 Buick and i was wondering if the column shifter could be converted into a floor mount without any major modifications? also, does anyone know of a shift kit for this tranny?

I may be shooting off at the mouth here but here is what i think. Any after market floor shifter should work you would need to cut a hole in your floor and hook it to the tranny. And if there is a shift kit available you might check with your local tranny repair shop they seem to be able to get parts the average joe cant. I hope i helped and that it works out for you. And if your not sure about the floor shift conversion you could always use the tech line at summit or jegs. I think the guys at jegs are more freindly though.

Jegs and summit tech most likely will not know what a Dynaflow trans is or heard of one.... never know though

THe Dynaflow shift pattern is not compatible with a modern shifter detents.

I am sure something could be modified to work, it would a bit of re-engineering of parts.
