Floor shift parts needed

Like most folks with a column shifted AOD I'd like to convert my car to floor shift.  When getting the parts from a donor car with a floor shift AOD would it be easier to get the entire transmission with all the linkage attached or can I get the parts I need without the transmission?  I've read the TV cable is secured differently in a column shift vs. floor shift vehicle.  Any advice on this conversion would be greatly appreciated.

Coolcats has a pretty good and in depth write up. I wouldnt swap the whole transmission, only the shift lever is actually different

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

I'll likely have all the parts you need to make the conversion if this 87 Sport that I have doesn't sell by the end of the month. Been trying to sell it now for a while and not much interest. If it doesn't sell by then I'll start parting it out.

Thanks, 50RACER!  Please keep me in mind if your car doesn't sell although I would prefer to see sold intact to a good home.

I just removed the transmission and shifter parts from my 88 XR-7. I have every part down to all the brackets for the AOD and the different shift lever. I wont be re installing them and I'm in Ohio as well.
