TH400 to a 5 gear change

Lookin to put a 5 spd in a 67 Malibu, have the petals, frame is set up for a manual. Whats a great change over over kit setup? Bell housing, flywheel, clutch, Clutch fork ect. All linkage. A 5 gear that will handle a well built 396. Is there someplace that offers all the above? What tranny? Richmond?, Tremec?

Thanks dudes.

what is your budget $$$
what is you current axle ratio???
what about floor/hump mods? factory bump only or a big hole you can throw the trans thru

these links may be a good guide for what is offered as a complete kit.

i chose to not go this route because i wanted to reuse as many of the existing parts that i had on my 4speed car.
i also went with an early 3550tremec that was not a tko model that people have issues shifting above 6000rpm.
i think a 5speed richmond is a good choice for you as less mod's should be needed.
but new prices have jumped to $3500 just for the trans
