1970 Galaxie Sportsback...Automatic column shift to a floor shift conversion information needed.

Asked by Aug 10, 2019 at 08:00 AM about the 1970 Ford Galaxie

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Has anyone completed a automatic column shift to a floor shift conversion while
using the factory parts to keep it as original as possible?

1 Answer


I know restorers of classics who have done this with ease; it's really not difficult. The only thing that might be tough is revamping the column so it doesn't look like a shifter was ever there, and that's just a trim ring. You could even just remove the shift leverand leave the column mechanism alone.
