1967 Impala 4 speed conversion
Good morning. New member here. Hopefully you can help shed some light on my impending 4 speed conversion project this winter. Lifelong Mopar guy so a newbie in the GM world. Always loved 67 Impalas and am a big wagon fan. So, when a 67 Wagon crossed my path, I jumped on it. Current setup is 1967 Impala wagon with 68 307, TH400, 12 bolt posi 3:31. Previous owner had a 4 speed in the car many years ago so I received correct steering column, pedal assembly, z bar and linkages, plus a few other odds and ends that are supposedly from the previous installation. I have a fresh 1972 M20 with a 26 spline input and 32 spline output shaft that I plan to use. I have not, however purchased a shifter and installation hardware kit. Seems to be nothing out there. Somebody told me a Competition Plus Hurst unit for a 67 Chevelle would be a close enough match but I called Hurst and they said no due to 2Ē offset in the shifter mechanism? Looks like you folks have been through stuff like this so, is there a shifter and install kit I could use on this transmission for my conversion or is there an acceptable alternative? I just donít want it to look goofy because it is too short, or to be banging my knuckles off the dash. Bench seat with no console or anything I should mention. Also, with this year Muncie will I be looking at altering the driveshaft length? Yoke change? Hope I can get some good advice so I can avoid any (or most) dumb and or expensive mistakes. Hope to be rowing through the gears this spring. Thank you in advance for any insights.
