Bill,In response to you email. 1) any AMC in any condition is worth what you get for it, if the man is offering 400 for a complete Ambassador then grab it...those things especially the 2 doors are rare! 2) A Floor shift conversion is easy, just cut your floor hook up the cables or linkages and your done! real simple!! 3) I will tell you this much. I have a 77 Hornet which is running a 904 from a 73 Javelin so a 4-speed would fit just fine in a Gremlin...Hope this helps!!

Between that and the Auto trans, (assuming it all works) he's thinking of $400 for the pair. He's going to check and let me know. Is that a good price? I have to tell you, I have qualms about taking any parts of a fully intact car, but I guess someone else would if I didn't..... 2) Is it easy to convert the regular column shift mechanism to that of a floor shift using a later model floor shift setup from one of the availble Gremlin/Hornet/Concord setups? I've got a non automatic tilt steering column now that I was going to put in with the floor shift. I suppose I could get a column shift tilt if I had to. 3) Would a 401 with 4speed tranny from a '74 Javlin easily fit my '72 Gremlin? I know the V8 would, but would the 4speed? Anything special about that? I've got a three speed but could go with the four.
