Default 3 speed from a 40 in a 55?

So I have a gentleman interested in the 3 speed I have for sale for his FJ55. The trans is a floor shift 3 speed from a '72 FJ40 and he has a '70 FJ55 that is column shift. I'm pretty sure it is a direct fit but I have been wrong all too often lately and would like the opinions of the masters. He is primarily looking to convert to the floor shift.

I thought I heard years ago that all the 3 speeds were column shift from the factory and the floor shift was an aftermarket option but I don't know if that is true. Would it be quicker and easier for him to swap the shift housing than to swap the whole transmission, assuming they do interchange?

Thanks guys.
