The conversion that every one is beating to death is as easy to do. The only thing that is a necessary evil is the suspension, the factory didn't figure for the 4 speed cover. There fix was to cut the area out and turn it over and weld it back. You can see this with an original early frame. As for the rest of the conversion its a direct bolt in. Bought a 64 700 with a seized engine, swapped in a 63 engine, not sure of the trans 62-65 and a 64 4 speed transaxle. I even have a quick shifter kit in it and it fun to drive.
