yeah, i could, but i figure in the long run it would just be easier and cheaper to find one that already has a stick. seeing as i am gonna swap out the engine anyway, i could save some cash there by finding one that the owner may just think is a heap. hell, i remember that i could have gotten a 67 for $100 ( probably free ) when i was looking at Cougars the first time around. man it was beat. but it was a legit XR7 302 4bbl, but an auto. if i had the chance again, id probably go for it this time. needed a carb ( someone stole it ) fender, drivers door. err, the entire interior needed work ( there was a ton of crap in there ) and not much else. i was told it was running fine when parked. it just looked like hell. and seeing that it was a California car... it wasnt really rusty. just ugly ugly ugly. too bad it went to the great crusher thoughcougar1 said:
Hey sixt9coug,, You can convert an auto to a 4 spd. That's what I did with mine in '83 and have had it in there ever since.
