Manual Transmissions

I'm building a 62 chevy II, which currently has no motor or trans. The car will be a daily driver hot rod, and may never see the track. I will probably build a little 350 for it; nothing too special just a modest build up probably. I definately want a manual, but not sure what to get. I thought about trying to find a muncie 4-speed, but the more I think about it a 6-speed would be really nice to have in a daily driven car, and would probably be a lot of fun. I heard the 6-speeds came in late model camaros, correct? Are there many of these trannies around, and how much could I expect to spend? If not a 6-speed, what were good muncie trannies and what did they come in? I heard those can get quite pricey, and I don't imagine they are readily available in many common junkyard cars. Any other ideas? The car is still a long ways from being on the road, but I would like to start looking for the vital parts. Any input about tranny choice/experience or where to find one would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Is the Chevy II equipped with straight drive pedals?

Chevy II V8's have a different place for the Z bar to hook up to on the block (this can be overcome BUT)........

Chevy II's also need a special Chevy II oil pan and pickup for the oil pump. A early 327 Chevy II block would be my foundation ( I see them on Ebay fairly often). Use a 153 Tooth flywheel and a 10 and 1/2 inch clutch. Most Chevrolet bell housings will not work......the floor/transmission hump is too small.

Muncie 4 speeds came in a lot of GM muscle cars. $500-$600 is the going rate in my area.Beware of the ones with no speedometer drive unless a super price.
