On the above page are some photos and a description of fitting an MGB 
engine and 4-synchro+overdrive 'box to a 1960's Farina Oxford.
It includes a pic of shortening the remote gearlever extension to fit, 
and a new tunnel.

I'd agree that the benefits of non-OD box over all the mods needed for 
a 3-synchro box might not be great.
I also love the sound of the non-synchro 1st gear. Bah, musicians, eh?
