Post up a pic of the.other side.of the shifter. The right side doesn't show any remnants of a factory 4 speed floor. Is the engine numbers matching to the car. If so, the three letter code by the.vin stamp behind the alternator would confirm what trans it came with.

Sorry to say but definitely not a factory 4 speed car. Those floors look pretty decent. From the pic, I think you'd be able to dustless blast them like new and epoxy.

Yeah......there is one small place on the passenger side. I bought a patch panel for it and the truck has one small place in it. What saved the car was someone attempted a partial restoration years back.......all I know is that I own it now and I've got the fever........hahahahahahah........my wife thinks I'm crazy!!!!!!

I wouldn't put in your whole .ew patch panel. I'd just cut out what you need. Then put the new piece on the floor, scibe.it, cut.it out with a cut.off.tool. then lay it it and.use.a couple of.magnets to hold.it flush and tack weld.it in. I scavenge magnets out of computer hard.drives. They are.super.powerful. I even.put one on the bottom of.my oil filter.on my cars. And.keep one inside my lid of.my tool box and it keeps razors.handy.

I'd check to see if your steering column mounting plate at the firewall was cut for a hole for the clutch pedal rod, and if there is a hole remember to plug it so fumes don't enter the interior

Hi Scott you can start by placing a wanted ad in the Classified section. I'd imagine you shouldn't have too much difficulty finding one. I see most conversions go the other direction (auto to manual).

Not yet but I am working on it. I am getting ready to scrap a couple of Mustangs to help buy one.
