I curently have a very nice '67 rs. It has the correct L30 - 327 with the 2 spd. powerglide. I would like to know if I could convert to a Muncie 4spd without much difficulty? What and where do I get good step by step info on this? Is there driveline issuses such as length, trans mounts, Is the clutch/brake assem. swap fairly simple etc. Do you recommend the M-20 or 22 ?

Swap will be pretty simple, use the same driveshaft, crossmember.

Check the recycle yards for a clutch-brake pedal setup. Might do better with aftermarket restoration house parts, as they sell everything.

You'll have to get longer flywheel bolts, clutch cover bolts, pilot bearing, and a reverse back-up light switch and its wire harness.

My question is, if the car is nice and original, why change it?

I agree, keep it stock,I have a buddy with a 64 nova that have a T400 auto and switched to a stick, boy does he regret it when he is stuck in traffic (he's like me over 40)... just my .02 Good luck with your conversion? Bye the way, you sure live in a beautiful area. great golf course too (Classic I think the was name of it, tough!)

Just installed a T56 into my 1968 RS (along with a ZZ4)...far from stock but should be a lot of fun to drive. If you're interested let me know and I'll pass you the name of a guy who sells pre-fabricated kits to convert to the T56. It's not exactly easy...there are issues such as pedals, speedometer, driveshaft, crossmember, hydraulic conversion, etc but to me it was worth it.
