79 Bronco auto to manual swap?

Forum users,

I am eyeing a custom 79 Bronco 4x4 with a 460 V8 for sale in my area. The only problem is it's an automatic. What all wood it entail to swap out the auto for a manual? This Bronco is a great price, and will make a great project for what I want. Would it be worth getting, or am I better off finding one with a manual tranny?

Thank you!

You will never find another 460 equipped Bronco since they did not come from the factory. There is no computer controlled automatic transmission in the era so unless someone did a lot of work you are free to source an manual transmission from another 460 truck. It will have to be from a 4x4 donor to work without even more work. Finding the pedal assembly will be the next step.
