Question about Cars & Trucks
I was wanting to know if it was possible to convert my 3 on the tree to a floor shifter. I just got the truck today and absolutely hate the column shifter. If possible could you please include what would be required and also where to find the parts. Thanks

SOURCE: 3 speed shifter conversion
I have the same problem on a 65 c10 3 speed. Nothing is wrong with the mechanism, use the brackets from the kit and/or bend the original ones (they are relatively heavy gauge and will have to put them in a vise to do so). Get the rods to switch sides without colliding with each other.
The alternative i originally thought was to turn the entire shifter mechanism around, but that failed
Alternatively just leave it alone, and be the only one who knows how to drive the truck

Hi, Well those shift cables have a slight adjustment at the trans. When I replaced the cable on my 96 i had to adjust it slightly. But before you adjust it make sure that the cable is routed the same way that it came out, if the cable is kinked or bent in any place it can cause it to bind and not go all the way down. Hope that helps
