AOD conversion

Post by harleyhoot » Mon Nov 05, 2018 11:44 am

I've looked thru here and can't find any specific info on converting a 55 from Fordomatic to AOD. I am curious if the AOD will fit in the tunnel without floor mods? Thanks for any info or direction from someone that has done this.

I cant answer for sure but the AOD is a beefy trans. I put on in a 1964 Fairlane and absolutely despise it. Cant get the TV cable adjusted where I want it for shift points. Ive got a big bellhousing C4 in mine and its tight, I imagine an AOD would be very very close to needing some tunnel mods to fit.

Not sure about a 55, but a friend of mine put in an AOD in his 56. No mods to the tunnel, but did have to do some grinding on the frame
