Has had bell housing machined off and a scattershield beautifully fabricated from 1/4" plate steel fitted that accepts SBC block pattern. Have the tail shafts made up and high quality 5000rpm stall converter to suit. Also have the pushbutton change which I can use if I have to, but would prefer a floor shift.
