you can use a 4 speed in your car,but the 5 speed is not going to work,problem is the bolt pattern is not the same.

785

If you Have a 6 bolt Bell housing and not a 5 bolt bell housing you can update to a T5 5 spd manual transmission fairly easy, here is a link on it: http://www.fordfalcon2000.com/restoration/T5.htm
