Be careful as to what 4 speed it is. A toploader is a better trans then the t5. An srod trans is junk.

I seriously doubt it is a toploader tho.....

Check to see if the engine is an HO and what it looks like. For the tranny well your going to have to get under the car and check the numbers to be sure.

I had a 79 Cobra 302 with the SROD box. I had to fix it several times cause it would get stuck in a gear. The shifter mechanism (rod type) was poorly designed. It was a 4 speed with 4th as an overdrive.
My t5 rocks!
