Hey everyone, hope I can find some help here.

I have a 1967 mustang with an inline 6 and 3spd. The clutch on the 3 spd has taken a dump and rather than rebuild I was hoping to swap for an AOD for several reasons. This is a daily driver and I've heard the AOD's can provide a decent increase in mpg, and I'd also like for my wife to be able to enjoy driving this as well, but she isn't comfortable with a manual.

Everything I've read so far on the AOD has to do with the 289/302/351 engines. Is this possible to do on the inline 6? And does anyone have good step by step instructions? I'm fairly handy on my car but this will be the first time messing with the transmission.

Thanks for any feedback.

Even if you somehow bolt them together, the engine just doesn't make enough torque to support the overdrive. It will be constantly changing gears under any load at all, even small grades. Lower gears would help this, but factoring in the economic aspect, a C4 would be your best bang for the buck. Properly set up, you can still get 25+mpg on the high end.
