I will do one of three things for the trans on the '74, those are, a: nothing, b: a 5 speed, c: a 700R4. My '82 S10 is an auto overdrive and so is the '63 so I kinda like having one truck that I get to shift gears manually in...
OK, gotcha, yeah I'd kinda like to go back trucking and feel the gears go into place ,,know what you mean wanting to have at least one that you could shift,, feels good !! good luck with your restore.

Smile Re: How about some pics of '73-'87 Short Beds

I loved straight gears before my surgery then I switched everything including my '97 Silverado over to an automatic. Then I got this truck and I remembered how much I enjoyed shifting and even though column shifters can be a pain, this one still works perfect and I always thought they were kinda kool. I should try to convert the column shift to a five speed on the column... NOT!

Maybe they are catching Chevy trucks with those poles! Wonder what bait you would use??? Possibly a Ford hood ornament?

Welcome aboard! Looks like a nice project but I can't believe you sanded that fingernail polish pink paint off! What color you planning to go with?
