Re: Numbers Matching column shifter build sheet 1970 Transmission
if it were me, I would swap the motor too. But keep the origin motor trans and driveshaft. problem of selling a matching car to buy something not matching. when I domes time to sell your car, you have to deal with all the low ballers, tire kickers, the no shows etc. So when you finally sell the car, you get 2/3 of what it's really worth or 2/3 of what you paid for it. Now you have to go out and find another car that's not a total pile of garbage under the new shiny paint. So between selling your car and finding another suitable project you lose a year or more. Sometimes it just makes sense to keep what your happy with and modify what makes you happy. jim
Yep, I have already discussed that with them. I will probably do that in the future. They had another Chevelle in the shop that was on the way out, some kind of LS fuel injected engine with a 6 speed in there. It was pretty nice, I am thinking I will upgrade to a more powerful engine and steel bell housing in a couple years.
For now, I just want my car back and to drive it until it needs to go into the shop. Then they will do some paint touch up and upgrade the engine in a couple years.
