i see these websites, but the price of the transmission alone is way out of my budget. i would like to get a t56. and i ahve always been part of the camaro crowd. so i understood that i could take a lt1 camaro transmission and use it in various applications. i especially liked the fact the 6 th gears was a .50 ratio. can i use that trans? with one of these guys bellhousings?

If you really think about it a complete kit is the only way to go..If it's out of your budget now then save up & wait till you can afford it..There's too many variables doing it any other way (like buying a used tranny getting it bolted up only to find out it needs a rebuild) .. In the long run, by the time your done buying everything you need your not going to save much..

The most BOLT ON would probably be a toploader.

A friend of mine bought the Keisler "Engineering" kit for his 69 Mach and the only engineering on the kit was done by my friend.

Jeff T.

Low buck, touring style, '73 Convertible "rolling restoration", 351c, 2v heads with a shave and a haircut, Performer intake, Holley 650(ish), roller rockers, screw in studs, guideplates, stainless valves, Duraspark / Motorsports MSD, T-5 conversion. 1-1/8" front, 3/4" rear swaybars KYB shocks and some home brewed subframe connectors. Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

I bought a Keisler kit for my '73 and it bolted right in. The only thing I had to figure out was mounting the clutch pedal, which isn't part of their kit.

Toploaders are a good trans unless you want or need the overdrive gear.

My Mustangs:
71 M-code Mach 1, Medium Blue/White Sport, 4R70W, 3L50, Factory Ram Air.
72 Q-code Mach 1, Pewter/Black Sport, 4-spd, 3L25.
65 Convertible, Britney Blue/White/White, more modified than original.
05 Convertible, Legend Lime/Tan/Tan, future classic??

Ford got it right the first time and I was surprised by how few Mustangs came with manual transmissions.
