Re: HD 3 speed
I DO NOT want to be negative, but unless someone needs if for an absolute correct, numbers matching restoration, I'm afraid the demand is going to be very low, thus, a somewhat low value.
It seems that 4spds, such as Muncies, are even going way down in demand and value.
The big trend is to 5-6spd OD manual transmissions or OD automatics.
I hate to see that trend, but that seems to be how it is.
If I had a 55-57 Chevy that was an original 3sp car, I'd jump on it just so that it would have a fully syncro 3sp on the column.
Our 70 Malibu conv was originally a 3sp on the column, and it would be parfect for it. BUT, alas, I've already converted the 70 to a Muncie.
Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak. (unknown)
