How easy would it be to take an automatic 1970's mustang and convert it into a manual?
I have a 1970 mustang that has an automatic transmission and I really want to make it a
manual. Is it a possibility or is it to much work?
Yes it will be a lot of work but it can be done, the biggest headache will be the pedal tree under the dash.
Besides the engine and a transmission what other parts would I need, and would an 03 transmission be compatible with a 99 engine?
Whoa now that is a totally different ball game, now getting electronics involved. Go back to old school.
Ok. So besides the engine and the transmission what do I need?
Drive shaft needs to fit. Converting to a manual is not a huge project but it does take some expertise. Got to cut a hole for the clutch rod. People do it. If you are getting a newer motor, get the 5 speed that came with it. Plan it out, read about the conversion. You can do it.
