I used the Kugel kit on my '48, but decided to go the cheap route on my '62. 
I drilled a hole in the frame for the pivot rod to mount in, and cut and 
welded the shift rod to get the right length. Cost? The parts came with the 
donor car I got the engine from, and the welder was just sitting there 
gathering dust.
oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
