In The News: California Pony Cars’ T-5 Conversion Kit
California Pony Cars’ T-5 Conversion Kit for 1964-73 MustangsCalifornia Pony Cars is here to present you with their T-5 Kit for 1964-73 Mustangs. With this kit, you can install a Borg-Warner T-5 or Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission into your favorite first-gen pony car. It’s great news for anyone looking for an easy way to add an overdrive transmission to their build.
The T-5 kit makes it easy to install a late model Borg-Warner T-5 or Tremec TKO, 5 speed manual transmissions in a 1964-1973 Mustang. The kit allows drivers to take advantage of the 1st gear ratio which increases torque and low end performance in 5th gear. It’s an incredible boost in performance. The 5 speed conversion allows utilization of the existing OEM emergency brake linkage, speedometer cable, clutch linkage, flywheel, clutch, starter, throw out arm & bushings with no cut outs required. CPC makes it easy by creating multiple conversions for early and later model manual transmission bell housings. CPC also created an adapter plate that provides mounting holes for the attachment of the plate and securing the transmission. The 5 speed conversion kit comes complete with a precision engineered spacer/adapter plate, trans cross member bar, drive shaft slip yoke, trans mount insulator, and shift lever & knob. California Pony Cars continues to sell their kits in today’s market. CPC has been manufacturing the T-5 kit for over 20 years. It is safe to say we can call California Pony Cars the “Originator” of the T-5 kit.
