    I have seen many threads converting an auto trans to a manual trans, but nothing about converting a column shift to a console shift for a 727 in my 69RR. I would think this is a far less difficult process...new steering column, console, shifter, and some linkages. Other than that, anything out of the ordinary involved? Anyone sell kits?

    I haven't seen any complete kits out there, but all the parts are available for a dedicated forager.
    Tony's parts has the sleeves to change over the steering columns.

    Well, if it were me (which it isn't), I would be inclined to just change the lower collar on the column (for looks only) & run an aftermarket cable shifter. If I got "fancy", I'd try to install an automatic console & line up the shifter through the factory console hole with as little modification as possible. Going that way, it shouldn't be hard (or expensive). This has been my personal plan for many years once my knees can't operate the clutch pedal.
