I need a new transmission crossmember for my 71 mustang to flip, it's missing the original one. Do I have to use a 71 only, or will an earlier than 71 trans mount still work? I'm going to put a three speed auto back in it, this is the last 'big' part I don't have.

71 was the bigger body change but i doubt the x-member would have altered much because the trans lenghts stayed the same for quite awhile? I would imagine anything close to that would work? not 100% but if ya stumble across it cheap what the heck. It's not to difficult to just make one really, if ya gotta mig and a few pieces of square tube and flat plate laying around - just make sure to keep the correct angle on the trans then figure out where the frame holes need to land.
