Re: floor shifter

Welcome James!

You might do some searching in transmissions and interiors for your answers. All the parts you need to add a console are reproduced and available at your favorite repro house. There is quite a bit to it, and as far as I know, no one packages a complete kit.

As for the transmission, depends on you and what you will do with the car. A T350 will give better performance and driveability than a glide, but a 4 speed overdrive automatic will go in too, and THAT will make her a completely different car by opening the highways to quiet cruising.

Re: floor shifter

David, welcome to Team Camaro. You should start a new post in Transmission section for every new question you might have. Adding it to this one will confuse folks as to which question is being answered.
