Has anyone swapped one of these into a 71-73 convertible? I'm looking at going that route but the extra bracing makes things a bit tight. I did a search but couldn't find any examples done on a convertible.
I am doing the same thing. The crossmember is harder to find that the Holy Grail. What are you using for a shifter?

I used a BM shifter, but bassicly you can fabricate it to fit any shifter of choise. If you can or somebody could fabricate a crossmember, way cheaer then buying and trying to find one.

My all time favorite vehicle is our 1969 Shelby GT500
We did an AOD transplant into our 73 Mach 1. The engine is a street/strip built 351W (not C). Below are links to the YouTube videos I shot of the entire process. In the YouTube descriptions I provide parts and vendor lists. Best thing we could have done is installing the AOD.



This is a link showing the impact on engine RPM at 60 MPH with the AOD in 3rd/Drive gear, and then in 4th/OverDrive gear. In the AOD, 3rd gear is a 1:1 ratio, just like 3rd gear in a C4. FMX, or C6 automatic transmission.









Following is a list of relevant YouTube video links contained in this document’s prior paragraphs, and from YouTube listings:

I have a 4R75E for sale if anyone is looking for a mod motor swap and wants 4 speed auto. It was rebuilt recently with a stage 2 shift kit and has ZERO miles on the rebuild. Still has 19 months of warranty. Donor car was a 2009 Police Interceptor.
