I just got done putting a 351 with a C-4 I thought anyways.I believe it is a cruiseomatic instead.It was from a 66 mustang.I was told it shifts like a cruiseomatic.The shifter from the 66 says cruiseomatic.What are the differences between a C-4 from the cruiseomatic.Is it worth changing the cruiseomatic to a c-4.All info would be helpful.

I believe a C-4 IS a cruise-o-matic. There are differences between the early (pre '70), and late ('70 and later) C-4's. Most of the aftermarket parts are built for the later style.

There are also two cases for the late V8 units. The "pan fill" (HD/truck) case has separate bolt holes for the bellhousing to mount, and the "case fill" (light duty) C4 uses the pump bolts to mount the bellhousing.

I'm not certain about swapability with valve bodies, but I don't believe you can swap across the early/late line.

Good luck!

A cruise-o-matic is indeed a C-4. The only difference you will notice (readily anyway) is that the Drive positions are different. In the cruise-o-matic model the small dot is the full drive gear (not just 1 and 2 gears), whereas the C-4s after '70 (?) are just the opposite and the large dot is for all gears. Other than that, they will drive the same.

I can't really comment about valve bodies etc. because I'm really not sure.

I have two 66 mustangs and although I just bought a 70 comp type i liked my 66 if you race it you start in low then shift up 1 gear then when it shifts to second pull it back into low gear and it will hold that gear until you are ready for third then you can shift up 1 gear again for third.. the shift pattern is park ,reverse nuetral second drive and low..Yes you read it right second is the little dot after neutral.its for icey roads and lets you sart of in second gear to minimize tire spin..All though you can change the 24 spline input to a 26 you have to use the 66 valve body.. I put in a transco shift kit and it hits hard..Bruce

I just rebuilt a '66 C-4 last week and it came factory with the "greendot" cruisomatic valve body. I will have to do some checking to see when the "greendot" valvebody was phased out.

I've heard it was '73, but not sure. My tranny is apparently out of a '74 Lincoln.
