As I understand it, in 1963 the sedan and stationwagon share the same undercarriage. If this is true, can one exchange a regular manual tranny with an overdrive by swiching transmission and driveline from the wagon over to the sedan?

The overdrive trans should install with no alteration to the bellhousing or driveshaft. It's the same length with the same input and output. Just be sure if you have a T86 (V8) you get a T86 overdrive trans. Likewise, if you have a T96 (six) you need a T96 trans. Simpler than you hoped.:D
