Re: 1970 Muncie 4-speed TRANSMISSION?? or
If racing and sticky tires are in your future, then consider a automatic. They are far easier on parts than a stick car and are more tolerant of a bad setup. A stick car needs a good suspension, no wheel hop and bullit proof parts.
But if the street is your thing with a blast at the track every now and then you can't beat a stick for fun factor. Parts for any muncie are available new, not hard to find at all. There are also new gear sets for muncies now, M22 wide ratio and a M21 wide, not just another M20.
Every part of a Muncie had been reproduced and most of the new parts are much stronger than the originals.
