I'm tossing around the idea of a Richmond 5-speed into my '65. Has anyone here ever done this, seen it done or heard about it?

What kind of options on the pedal setup might I have?

Sorry,Dwane,I haven't seen it done. I'm sure it can,since it's a big car,with lots of room in the transmission tunnel. You'll probably have to bolt it up to the engine,and construct things like a tranny mount and shift/clutch linkage as you go.

They were available from the factory with 4-speeds and there is plenty of room in the tunnel.

Hey Alex, you wouldn't happen to have a clutch and brake pedal set for one of these big-uns you'd be willing to part with, would you?
