Has anyone done a 5.0L conversion using the ford AOD transmission?

I have the Lane Family mounting system that is intended for the 3550 five speed.

Just want a nice mild 302 with auto to cruise.


If you have done the AOD, did you have to modify the trans tunnel?  Any other thoughts on it?


Looking forward to getting my 73 240z project going full swing this fall.

I wish I could help a little more but I just bought a 73' with a 5.0 and AOD (I believe) . It fits I don't think the trans tunnel was modified  mounts were custom. Wish I had the 5 speed

I have just fitted one to my 260z with a 351 windsor. My car was originally a manual and I have room for my levers and connecting rods.

There was an AOD in the 72 I bought. No tunnel mods and the mount was flat bar stock with a cable mount from the stock Nissan shifter. I am selling the entire drive line in Parts if u want it
