To answer one ofthe original questions, yes quite a few have added standard shift transmissions to 359 engines. I've not participated in such a job myself but I've been told its straight forward and simple, especially if you have a suitable donor car with all the required parts. The one conversion that comes to mind immediately is the ex-Ole Book 1953 Caribbean with 359 and standard shift.

Thanks for that tidbit of knowledge. It just didn't seem like it should be that huge a deal. But thinking has gotten me into more trouble than a little bit. I have learned how to ask for help here in my declining years.
