We just purchased a 1962 Ford Falcon with the 170 6cyl and 3 speed on the tree.
Joined the group hoping to find ideas and information. Especially on swapping the 3 speed to an automatic transmission.
Looking forward to all

The 62 Falcon is a good one to have I learned to drive in one that was a family car. It had the 170 and column shift also. I do not know much about your trans swap other than it would be a c4 most likely. However I can recommend getting a copy of the Falcon Performance Handbook it will provide lots of ideas and information. You will see what a great resource and value it is.
