yes, the early transmissions bolt right up to the late cars but the late trans doesnt bolt right up to the early motors because its missing the holes for the crankshaft sensors...

The newer manual shifter housing will not mount to the older transmission, it used a metal plate, it can be made to work with some effort.. If it's an auto, some of the later transmissions had electronic valve trains.
