60 transmission help
« on: March 12, 2015, 12:59:24 AM »
Hi guys,

The previous owner of my 60 Cadillac Limo decided to strip the torque convertor into all its pieces. As a result, some parts went astray.

Will the torque convertor from a 58 Cadillac work perfectly on my 60?

Alternatively, will the 58 transmission fit my 60?
 
Thanks in advance.

Firstly, not sure if the '58 Torque Converter will fit, but the '58 Transmission won't fit in the '60 without some reshaping of the floor.

The '60 Trans is smaller in overall size to the '59 and earlier, and Cadillac changed the floor pan pressings to give the passengers more interior space.
