1966 GTO manual to automatic conversion: Shifter/Brake pedal

Hi guys,

I just bought a 1966 GTO from Ohio - not quite original (it has a 1968 400 cui engine) but nicely rotisserie-restorated.

It features a Muncie 4-speed with a console mounted Hurst shifter - probably very desirable, but I want to convert it to a TH350 (which might be easier) or TH400 (which might be more durable).

Anyone here who has done this in the other direction (auto to manual) and still has the brake pedal and the auto shifter in the barn?
I wanted to keep the interior as OEM as possible - but can't find any 1966 shifter. The next best thing seems to be a reproduction of the 1967 his/hers shifter...

Cheers

Ralph

Hello and Welcome !

SWEEEEEET ride

Factory Headrests !!! SWEEEEEEET

passenger recliner ?? too ??

I would do the repro 67 dual gate and a 66 console

I have an auto flex plate from a low mile engine and crank bolts

tranny lines nice originals

67 dip stick and tube for the t/400

67 real deal turbo 400 drive line ... no t400 in 66 gto's originally
t 350 I think u can use the same drive line and yoke

my buddy has a t400 with low miles ... but I would have it freshened up from a 68 or 9

I have tranny pan brackets ... acces to a parts car with a chunk of floor pan to fill the hole

kick down switch and bracket

and a brake pedal ...

Scott

I'll try to get some in a day or so. Not the prettiest and mine has "wood grain" as per 67 model in place of your chrome fin style
