Hi all! In the process of restoring a 71 mach 1 auto and looking to convert it over to a top loader. I need everything for the swap. Let me know what you have to offer! Thanks!

Parts are available..... maybe, but not cheap and you'll still likely to need to rebuild the top loader and shifter.
Personally if I were going the 4 speed rout on a conversion and I think others will agree, buy a Tremek 5 speed or even a 6 speed. Check out "Modern Drivelines" as I believe they have everything to do a far better conversion.
That's just what I'd be looking at, but your choice of course.

There's nobody that likes a 4-speed better than me, but I agree with Geoff, if I were going to convert, it would be to at least a 5-speed. Nothing like having low gears and an overdrive, got it on both ends that way.

I have a 4-speed/Manual pedal box I can part with.

Oh and I have a couple of 5 Speeds. In the Kansas City area.

Piecing everything together can get pricey. Things like the clutch fork in particular may be hard to find and expensive
Buying everything together at at around 2k. + and having to restore the components gets you into buying a whole parts car and selling off what you don't need territory. All that makes the tko conversion pretty attractive in the long run.
