I have a 1980 Chevy Monte Carlo with a 350 automatic transmission with column shift I'm wanting to replace the 350 transmission with a 700R4 with the stock column shift is there a way I can retain to stock column shift to work with all the gears with the 700R4 transmission,will the stock linkage bolt to the 700r4 trans or what? THANKS

I haven't did that. But I know it can be done. You would get a different gear indicator for your dash. I was going to do the same with mine, but the linkage was bad. So I put in a B&M floor shifter.

i think nillabu did his column with a 200r4.yes it's a different trans but it's still a swap of the 4-speed nature.maybe he can shed some light on your idea.

I used a lokar rod linkage kit to make my 200r4 work on the column.

If I were to do it a again...I would have used the cable kit instead ( i didnt know they offered that at the time)

With the rod...wot in 1st gear would bump the trans into 2nd if I didnt hold it.

Im going to attempt to make a cable contraction to use my column shift with the lexus trans
