You could use a newer transmission with hydraulic clutch on the passenger side if linkage interference is the issue.

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
I think they make those for older transmissions, too. I just installed one on a top loader. Plumb it to the left or to the right. As long as the bleeder is up!

Change to a firewall unit with hanging brake pedal seems easiest way. Everything is under the hood, easy to check fluid & monitor everything.

Car chat means talks about Chevy's. All other car makers only build transportation.

I don't work on my cars, I entertain my self in my garage, so my nabor tells me,

I prefer the barn door style, mostly because I think they look better. They're easier loading also, especially since they can swing fully open.

That being said, the clamshell doors had lower production numbers, therefore are rarer and probably more valuable. Parts may be harder to find however. It's also a one-piece glass (no center divider) for better rear visibility.
