Look at Craig's List. That's how I found mine. Trucks used the 390/C-6 as well as cars.

Hope this helps. - Dave

The C6 has several different tail shafts. Measure the total length of your current transmission so that you can pick the right one on the C6. Some of the trucks have a short tail shaft with a fixed drive shaft coupling. I bought one that way then changed tail shafts however the trans has to be completely disassembled to do that. So try to get the right one at the start.

Still waiting to do it. Had to do some major repairs on my other cars. So T Bird is still waiting. Hope to get it done in the next month.

Just one thing to remember-

The FORD-O-MATIC series trans were DUAL Range shift pattern whereas the C6 was SELECT-SHIFT, meaning the shift indicator patterns were not the same, i.e. -

FOM- P-R-D2-D1-L

C6- P-R-D-2-1

So you will have some trouble with your shift indicator. The early C6 was DUAL-RANGE (some performance applications SELECT-SHIFT) and the FOM was offered in 1967 as a SELECT-SHIFT for performance applications.

Just in case you didn't know...
