Hello all,

Doing some research while my '59 Belvedere is away at the painters. I am sort of wavering between going back to original (via a poly 318/cast iron torquefite, which I would have to hunt down because I don't have one) or using the engine that was in the car when I bought it (440/727). For reference, the original rear axle was swapped out for one from a late 60's Charger, which is leaning me toward using the 440/727. (Also, I already have it and know it runs nicely)

Original engine or not, I am wanting to be able to use the push button setup to shift the transmission. Being new to Mopars, I have researched myself into utter confusion on what can and can't be done with regards to push button-shifting a 727. Since this certainly isn't the first time this has been done, I thought I'd ask here.

I believe my 727 is from 1969 based on this number stamped on it: K2892090L 2764 9252

If that is the case, is this transmission a candidate to be push button shifted using this cable:

Or do I need to hunt down an earlier 727 to be able to use push buttons?

Any insight is appreciated.

To my knowledge, the A&A kit is the one made by Imperial Services, it will shift any '66-later Torqueflite but there is no provision for Park. Since you have the later rear end, you'll have to hook up the parking brake if not already done.

My shop installed a 440 / 727 from a 1971 New Yorker in my 1961 Newport convertible. They used this kit with the 61 push buttons, and it works great.

As 57 Chizer noted, it does not have a provision for Park, so we hooked the parking brake cable to the rear brakes. We also used the 8 3/4 rear end from the 71 New Yorker in the Newport. You already have a late 60's rear end in your car, so I'm just confirming this works.

If you really want an early 727 trans with the push button set up, I have one from a 1963 300 that I bought before I knew this kit existed...

Your other option would be to source a 62-64 trans.....
