Default decoding to see what transmission came in 67

Two questions
can you tell by firewall tag or door serial number if a 67 nova came out as standard or automatic?

Next is there a difference in the floor pan of a 67 nova that came out with a standard vs one that came out with a automatic?

When i purchased my 67 it had a clutch and brake pedal with a Doug-Nash 4 speed in it but no leakage hooked up and the hole in the hump for shifter butchered up so i really don,t know if it originally came out as a standard.
I,m thinking about changing to an automatic because it has the old style tci mustang II suspension under it and to much fabrication to run the 4 speed but i need to know if floor there is a difference in the floor pans do to the hump

Second line of the cowl tag (2) might have the information you seek. M denotes M35 PowerGlide automatic and an L denotes a M20-M21 four speed manual. The three speed manual was the standard transmission so if nothing there on the cowl that is what would have been installed.

A hump on the floor was only installed if the car had an optional denter console. Other wise a guy on the line cut a square hole in the floor of the car for a four speed with an acetylene torch (leaving a very ragged edge).

The floor pan and hump are fine as is. However, you will have to modify your crossmember at the front because it will hit the transmission pan. Not too big a modification but it's necessary to make it fit.

And if it's the 6" tailhousing on the TH350 you won't even have to change driveshaft length.
