Asked by Poncho Apr 05, 2011 at 11:18 PM about the 1963 Chevrolet Biscayne

Question type: Car Customization

New guy here, picked up a 63 Biscayne 2dr last weekend in trade. Id like to use the column shifter if possible to shift the turbo 350 in it. Other than linkage that I dont have (any specific type that I should use would help also) is there any mods to the column shifter itself? I know they were for a 2 spd power glide and Im looking to use it with a 3spd. Is it possible without swaping to a newer column?

Thanks in advance for any productive advice

It already has a auto column. The H.A.M.B. got me the info I needed.

Its in ok shape, definetly needs attention. Some rust repair needed. Its being taken care of for sure. Got some electrical to deal with also. Its somewhat rare, traded a '63 Corvair van for it, thats pretty rare. lol. Got a linkage on order, lookin for a shift lever still. Itll get done. lol.

Nah not gonna do any of that. If anything some Radirs or Supremes or such. More of a custom or traditional rod look. Maybe a red roof? Definetly a lot more pin stripping. Ordered a hitch for it also to tow my '67 Apache pop up with it.
