Hey everyone - new to the site (so to say) although I've been getting guidance from everyone's posts for years - decided to go all in and start to contribute.



I have a 1965 SS with a blueprinted 406sbc, 350 trans, Ford 9" with 4.11 gear-ratio. My father first purchased this car when I was in high school and it came with a 468bbc. The car sat in pieces for almost 13 years before I decided to put it back together. I seem to be having issues attaching a picture...



Upcoming mods this winter:

- Just got my CBR lowers w/ sway bar to try and make this thing steer

- Disc brake conversion

- Try and find a clean stock hood



Would anybody know where I can find a good, detailed post on doing automatic to manual transmission conversions? Either 4,5 or 6 speed conversions?



Thanks for listening.

Justin

Welcome from Edmonton (area) and that's a nice looking '65 you've got.

For the manual trans swap, do a seach on here and should find some good info. Basically need 1st gen 62-65 clutch pedal assembly, then I'd use a macleod master cylinder and hydraulic throwout bearing. Detroit speed also sells a hydraulic mc mounting bracket for the firewall.
