When I ran a powerglide in my car I used a B&M Ratchet Shifter mounted above my transmission.  I used a push/pull rod that actuated the shifter and another to push the reverse lock out.  I was looking through my phone to find a picture but I haven’t run the glide in 5 years so they are must be on an old computer.  I drilled a hole in the shift handle below the threads that the knob screws on to and used a heim joint to a 1/2” shaft and put the knob on the other end.  The knob was positioned on the rear housing below the steering wheel.

We use a B&M Pro Stick, doesn't take up much room.  mounted on right hand side, there isn't any spare room.

these pop up from time to time, one of the best small shifters made for a glide.... i had one in my RED years ago, was between my legs mounted to the front seat bar, very easy to reach down and shift
