You'll need at least a drive shaft swap and a shifter change. It'll need a kick down switch wired to the gas peddle under the dash and a vacuum line run from the intake manifold to the pass side of the tranny. Measure the powerglide from the bell housing to the rear tranny mount and compare with the turbo 400, you may need to modify the mount to make it fit.

i have the carb.kick-down taken care of,,and the vacuum mod. taken care of,,i just dont have the column shift-linkage cause when i bought this car the frame wasnt even bolted to the body ! no front end,eng., or trans,or rear,we had to slide it up a flatbed tow truck,but im almost done with it ! i couldnt work on it for a year at least--due to cancer
