I have a 1964 1/2 Mustang with a three speed manual Toploader transmission. I would like to keep the transmission. I have a '66 289 engine with the six bolt bell housing pattern. Is there a bell housing that would fit directly? Or do I need an adapter?
Most all small block ford bell housings (6 bolt type) for manual transmissions are going to have the dual bolt pattern for the top loader be it a 3-speed or 4-speed. So your toploader will bolt right up.
Make sure you have the correct flywheel tooth count based upon the bell housing you choose.
