Is the shift pattern on a ford c3 and a c4 the same?

I need a aftermarket floor shifter for a street rod that will work on a Ford c3. I have looked everywhere I know to look and all I could find is the stock wrecking yard stuff, not acceptable to the customer. I do not know if a c4 shifter will work. I know the bolt pattern is different on the two transmissions, the c4 has 11 bolts and the c3 has 13 bolts. I don't mind fabricating a few brackets to make it work, but if it is not feasible we will have to swap it out for a c4.

Probably not many Pintos, Mavericks etc.. left in Oregon.
I read somewhere that a shifter for a C4 will work but, I know nothing about Ford Trannys. I'm sure someone will chime in with more Info.
