I agree. . . .  I was just being the devils advocate.  People want what they want and that's how it is!  Right?

You mean to tell me a B body hump is that much different than one which could be used in a C body? If a Peruvian metalsmith can finesse one from hand, having the start of something close would work better than having to start from scratch altogether.

I have a C-body hump, from a 68 Fury, and I think it is darn close to a B-body unit.  I don't know why no one has tried to make one work before, I've suggested it many times.  I know if I was needing a 4 speed hump I'd go B-body and make it work.

That's exactly what I attempted initially.  A B-body hump.  Not even close.....  After 9 months of waiting, the one from Harms finally arrived.  Perfection.  And beautiful workmanship.  I swore it was stamped but Scott said it was hand formed.

Welll, make sure you have a plaster casting of it so it would make it easier to tap one out if that becomes a necessity in the future. Bet you could actually make a little on the side, betting the low volume is partially responsible due to the lack of knowing where to look for the darn things.
 
Talk about timing, right?

I didn't know you had ordered that.  I have an original I cut out of that rot box fast back here.  It's junk, but it could be used if you want a back up.  You want it?  I was about the trash it.  But Ed's idea would keep you sober.   and you can make some extra bucks for minimal cost.  A sheet of 20 gauge cold rolled 4' X 10', costs me 40 bucks

Nope.  Addding a hump on the transmission tunnel is now not necessary since no floor modification is needed with the Tremec top loader.  That will save gobs of agravation.
 
I need to hunt down one of these.  If I can do the pedal mod on the bench in advance, life will be much easier  on my back, knees, and neck.
 
Particularly the item #13 bracket (which is unique to the 774-78's, of course    )

Can you get me the centers on the bolts converter bolts?  The picture looks exactly like the one in the 67.  You can have that one and the related brackets to go with it. 
 
See if you can get your camera under there and take a couple of clicks.  I can compare it.
 
I plan on pulling the back half out tomorrow.  I can pull the rest of that brackets out for you.  They were coming out anyway.
 
BTW. . Where a hat.  I don't need it too bright.
 
You have my email

This is my thought with mine. 

My neighbor is a fiberglass man and said he could easily make a mold of my tranny hump.  Then I thought I could cast a few "new" ones in fiberglass and sell them.

I'd like to see that done.   May not make sense financially but what does with C-bods?

OK.  A fellow Formal weirdo came up with a 76 brake pedal bracket.  Now I'll be able to do some engineering with this on the bench rather upside down standing on my head bent up like a pretzel.

That one is wider at the pedal pivot than the 67.  But it leaves you some roon to mount a second pedal in there.  Also my pedal arm is straight.  The pedal bolts on.
 
I see how you could very easily mount a second pedal in there, just by cutting the pivot on the brake pedal and.  I may have some plastic bushings around for them too.
