68 ford f100: Can this be done, if so what transmission can i use?

This answer was rated:

I have a 68 ford f100 and I want to replace the 3 speed automatic with a 4 speed automatic. Can this be done, if so what transmission can i use?

The four-speed overdrive AOD which was offered from 1981-93 is the only non-computer controlled overdrive Ford transmission that will work with a V-8.

Thank you for the reply, just to be sure would this transmission be compaible with a kit?

1993 FORD F150 2WD 5.0 AOD Transmission
w/ Torque Converter.

Yes, you will need a conversion kit. I'm not sure what you mean by would this trans be compatible with a kit. You will need the appropriate flex plate for the C-6, AOD, and engine combination. You CANNOT use a C-6 flexplate on the AOD and vice versa. Here's another link for performance AOD trans:
