Would a 727 trans bolt up to a 61 318 poly motor ?
I have a 61 Savoy, push button 2 speed auto trans. The trans doesn't have park. I have a 727 in the shop & would like to install it in the Savoy. Any advice ?

acccording to the HOLLANDER INTERCHANGE MANUAL i would say no the crankshaft ,flywheel, and bellhousing on stick models are all different than later models that use the 727 trans. if i remember right your trans will lockup with motor off in reverse ,makes a park like option.

I would first see if i could fix the park issue in the car. Take the rod off se if it goe's into park, if it does than you have an adjustment problem. if not take the p[an off their is a plate that has notice's were the see if the teeth our ground off. it will not lock in park if the tooth is missing. The 727 has to be for a small block, the big block bell housing won't bolt. I am not sure if the push button will work you might have to put a shifter in.
