Don't have to change the tranny! Pretty easy job.
Get a floor-shift column, or you can get by with just replacing the shrouds that used to house the column shifter assembly. But floor shift columns should be cheap enough.
Grab a console, these are really common at swap meets and shouldn't cost much. Also have to get floor shifter, hump and T-bar linkage, and cut a hole in the floor. From memory, there is a pressed line in the floor that shows you where to cut. Use a good sealer to seal the hump to the floor. Last thing is to wire up the light for the T-bar dial in the console, and you're away!
