Getting the shift linkage means all of the stuff up to and including the gear shift lever. If you really like your old gear shift knob, you can use that--but the rest of it has to change.

The motor mount bar, the brackets that hold that bar onto the body, the rubber mounts in the middle, and the brackets that hold those mounts onto the engine. Get those from the donor car as well. If you use early outboard mounts, the drivetrain will sag and the linkage will not clear the hole in the motor mount bar.

Get the "converter" bushing for the hole in the firewall.

I believe that's it.

Mr. Dave:

Thanks for your time, very useful info.

Exist a problem with used tranny ?
Probably I will buy a used.

A used tranny can be fine or have problems. Depends on how many miles it has, how hard it has been used, how well it has been maintained, how carefully Hans in the factory assembled it in the first place, and so on.

Used is a popular option, particularly for the price-conscious. Then again, you seem to have a very sizeable budget--so a rebuilt one would be nice because you'd know exactly what kind of shape it's in.
