M22 tran(s) value

Team,

What is the value of a M22 trans or tran(s) in unknown condition and assume the worst. I hazard a guess there were "raced hard and put away wet" Im going to look at them soon.

Im told he has 3 complete M22 2 are assembled, 1 is unassembled. None have been rebuilt and have been sitting for quite some time. he also has all the parts I need sans drive shaft to convert an A-body to stick.

Open ended question i know but what should I look for. I hazard he wants to get rid of all three. i figure if i can get them cheap enough Ill buy all 3 make make one perfect one out of them and sell what i dont use.

Re: M22 tran(s) value

can't help on the value, but my experience when it comes to muncies, every Muncie is a M22, like every 327 came out of a corvette and all 12 bolts are posi's. personally I wouldn't go past $500 each just because I'm cheap and no idea on the conditions. jim

Re: M22 tran(s) value

I would say the value is anywhete from $300.00-$800.00. I think the value of tne Muncies has come down with the Autogear transmissions comi g on the market. Kind of hard to beat all the gear choices and improvements. Could possibly have almost as much into rebuilding an old Muncie as buying a new Autogear.

Re: M22 tran(s) value

I was planning on having my M-21 that I had in my car rebuilt and having the guts changed to a M22W. The case was made up from 3 different year pieces and needed the countershaft hole bushed and the front bearing retainer had 3 stripped holes. The cost to redo it would have been over half of what I bought a brand new AutoGear M22W for. The shop I bought the new transmission from offered me $50 for my old transmission but my friend said take it back and sell it yourself. I put it on Craigslist didn't have a lot of calls but the first guy that came and looked at it bought it for $300. Most rebuilt M-22's on Ebay are advertised for right around $2k. I don't think I would go over $500 either on something that has to be rebuilt.

I sold just a GM M22 gear set for $675 last year. This stuff isn't cheap any more. Of course that comes down to these being real M22's.

I'm looking for a girl with a car, and a house..........with cable.

Re: M22 tran(s) value

2 years ago you couldn't buy an M22 less than $1100. I paid $1250 for mine. If you can get M22's for $500 I'll take 1 and give you $100 for finding me another one.

Post the casting numbers, pics of the teeth, any Vin numbers on the side and the date codes.

What are they asking?

If you manage to have a 70 in the bunch with a Vin to an ls6....

Re: M22 tran(s) value

You can buy a rebuilt M22 for around 2K and a brand new M23 for something less than $2400.

By the time everything is said and done, $500 is about the max you should spend on any one used trans, unless he has a receipt from a trans shop showing it was recently rebuilt.

While rebuilding the trans isn't terribly difficult, unless you have the skills, you have to throw in another $200 to have a shop do the labor. Min of $200 for parts, but if you need a gear, shaft or the main case repaired then you are at the cost of a rebuilt one from a shop.

So $500 is a decent price for an unknown M22...

Re: M22 tran(s) value

There is a whole bunch of assuming in the op's post.

2 of the trans are assembled, if the seller knows what he has, you won't get them for $500.

Assembled m22 trans sell for around $1200 all day long online, rebuilt demanding far higher prices.

M22 for $500? Where?

Re: M22 tran(s) value

I would think the 661 case, fine spline M22s would demand more than the the earlier versions. I agree, you won't find a complete M22 for $500, possibly $800.

Re: M22 tran(s) value

Letís say a good one is worth $2,000 all day long, it takes 3 unknown used ones to make one and the labor to do it is worth $200. The break even spot is $600 each. Anything above that point is not viable. Sure you have leftover parts but they may or may not be useful. Iíll be there a good chance that there is one expensive part that will be required to make it work or these transmissions wouldnít be collecting dust.

I am normally the one who is always saying quoted prices on this site are always way undervalued. But unless you are a real transmission person, or personally know the seller, this is one area you can be bitten.

All I know is when I had my original Z/28's and 70 Chevelle and 64 GTO, during my 20's, 30's and even 40's there wasn't a day I didn't powershift them.

There are several "M22" transmissions for sale in various NW craigslist locales as we speak. One of them (in Bend, OR) claims it is an original LS6 trans. He recently lowered his price from $3,250 to $2,950. Another guy (on Bainbridge Island) is asking $2,200 for an "M22" with 915 miles since being rebuilt. A trans rebuilding shop in Graham, WA asks $2,700 for a rebuilt "M22" that doesn't picture a drain plug. Yet another person, in Bellingham, is asking $1,000 for a "doesn't have any miles on it" "M22". No photos of that one.

It seems I have recently seen other "M22" transmissions for sale on CL, one perhaps within the city limits of Seattle. Some don't seem to last long while others languish, like the "LS6" unit, which has been for sale for many months...I wonder why....
