this could be hard but a clutch pedel as well. include driveshaft or yoke for the 4 speed. clutch linkage. best bet would be put a manual valve body and a shft kit in the c4 and run that it will probably be cheaper or find a parts car thats a stick and grab it all. maybe a 77 mustang setup will fit. but youcould end up spending alot of money as toplaoders can cost some bucks

My guess is you don't want to hear this,But you can buy the stock units on ebay but they cost about 100.oo bucks or Auto krafters sells it. But take it from someone who has done this. Buy a good C-4 with a 3500 stall and a manual valve body and you will be much happier! P.S. There is a cable conversion for the 66-68 mustangs it should work on a Mav. But I have not done it yet but I'm going to next year!
