need parts advice
I've decided I'm going to build a "RAT ROD" to play with, I will be building my own frame and adapting various suspension parts to make it work.
I've got a few parts laying around that came out of my wife's project '66 coupe, it was originally a 6 cyl, 3 speed---going to be converted to V-8 automatic when we start on it.
I plan on putting the 6 cyl in the rat rod along with the 6 cyl rear out of the stang, I would like to switch the trans over to automatic just to make it easier to fit in the "RAT". I know I can use a C-4 but I'm not sure about what other parts I'll need to fit it on the I-6, I know I'll need a flex plate, torque converter, vacuum line and of course the C-4 --- but how about a bell housing? and will the drive shaft from the manual fit in the tailshaft of the C-4? I plan on using an aftermarket cable floor shifter too
sounds crazy I know, but I think it will be a ton of fun building.
