Hello Guys
I have 58 Saratoga with 354 poly. Right now I got this push button original transmission, but button panel is gone ,and Im thinking to replace for transmission with parking locking option ,with traditional shiftier.
What is the easiest option ? , Im in Europe but I have friend in US who can ship me parts .
Thank you

There is no way I know of to modify a cast iron torqueflite to add an internal park position. You would need an adapter for the engine and crank flange to bolt a newer aluminum torqueflite to your engine. i believe one of our members sells these; wayfarer at Quality Engineered Components.

If you do decide to adapt a later '62-'65 transmission to the 354, you can shift it with the original 5-button shifter but the Park mechanism uses a separate cable so you'd have to make provisions for that. '66 and later has an external shift lever with more positions that can be shifted by the pushbutton shifter.
