3 SpeedTransmission change over

Joe Martinez

I have a 1949 chevy fleetline that had a 216 6 cyl with a 3 on the tree. I put a 350 in it ,but I want to leave the three on the tre for looks of orignal,,,,I know that old 3 speed trans won't bolt up without an adaptor what I wanna know is if I put a later model 3 speed transmission in it will the shifter linkage work?

Mr. Bowtie

Joe you should be able to find a newer three speed trans that will work and then it will probably be synchronized also.
