Asked by Mar 26, 2016 at 02:34 PM about the 1968 Ford Mustang Base

Question type: Car Customization

I bought a 68 mustang.   Not very mechanical but the
engine is a 5.0  5 speed.   Want to convert it to automatic
so my wife can drive it.   Just wondering what the cost of
converting to  automatic if I took it to a auto shop.   At least
ball park.   Thanks

So someone has already altered it with a five speed, so it is going to be a tough one, plus you need decide on what kind of automatic you want too put in there, 3 speed, 4 speed or go full blown electronic. Just to many unknowns.

You'll need all the parts for the transmission, pedal, linkage, etc, and then the cost of removing the old, installing the new and setup. Is it a new transmission? Like tennis shoes says, too many unknowns, get a couple quotes from local shops who can perform the work for you. Figure a few grand at least.

Very costly, get an estimate from a transmittion shop for $ ideas. You'll need an auto trans, stall speed convertor, cables & linkage & a new radiator with trans fluid cooling section in the botom & trans fluid tubing lines & auto trans shifter. I'm sure its easier to teach your wife how to drive manual.

* auto trans cross member mount too.
