The 2.77 is a simple, lightweight transmission so simple a child could rebuild it. I know, because I rebuilt the one in my first Mustang when I was 17.
I've change a number of these to the 3.03 3-speed, simple in a 66, because all you need is a 67-70 6 cylinder bellhousing, clutch disc, transmission, linkage rods, and a C5ZZ conversion slip yoke.
However, this conversion is now obsolete, because:
By getting a clutch disc, adapter plate, conversion crossmember, conversion shift lever and knob, and the C5ZZ conversion slip yoke, you can install a T5 5-speed transmission, and your car will accelerate quicker, and get better mileage.
Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.
