I have the Marks adapter kit if you are interested. It's used, roughly 2 years old, bolts to the front of your stock 3 spd bell housing and bolts to back of the V-8. Uses stock transmission mounting points and locates teh engine roughly 3 inches forward of the firewall. Email me if you are interested.
And if you want to go to a 4-spd, I know where to find the adapter for V8-LC 4-spd too. You might want to consider getting a Chevy BH and using an SM420 or SM465. Just throwing out a few options for ya.
