I can see what your up against,with 3 on the tree and you can't fit a Saginaw 4 or Muncie 4,at least out here anyway.We call your model a C4. What I used to do is a simple conversion to a Turbo 350 Auto.Then I only had 1 selector rod up to the column to worry about.Found Performance about the same as the Manual.A 2000 Stall Speed Convertor is what I fitted also.Not suggesting for you to do this,except as a last option.

Actually the new cab I got for it has a TH350 automatic set up for it al though I'll never use a 350 I have some left overs from the Chevelle to make it work with the PowerGlide I have, the Richmond 6 i want, or the M22 "Rock crusher" I want with a little fab work to the transmission support cross member

Little known Fact the 3 speed didnt have a rear transmission crossmember it used the bellhousing to support the trans (I cursed it both times I put clutches in the truck) so a bellhousing change is coming no matter what I do and the front crossmember is going out with it

Kit cars are touchy things never owned or built one but from some of the people Ive talked to they can be just as hard to build as a frame off restoration

We have a early Mercedes kit car. Its sitting in the back of the shop and im not sure what model it is, though. My uncle also has an early VW bug he was restoring.

Im also building up a 1978 Chevy Cheyenne stepside. Its being converted to 4wd, and is getting a 1983 Suburban motor, 700r4 tranny, and transfer case. Its got a custom corvette steering column mixed with a few parts off other ones to fit with the tranny. Also has factory tach and a few other nice options not seen to often. :thumbsup:

The driver only had some bruising (seat belt)
and 2 small cuts.
-car loss $1 Million bucks!
-waiting list for a new one - 2 years;
-when can I drive Dad's car again - nuclear 1/2 life;
-when will I not be grounded &see the light of day -
same day the polar ice caps melt
-still alive....

Priceless

Car only had 9 miles on it!

One mile of it was during the wreck.

All credit to you fozzie.Well done. :thumbsup:
I wanted to share these pictures,which were sent to me.
Without your time and expertise,it wouldn't have been possible.
Just proves once again,A great BC Family.

How lucky this person was that the Pole hit just behind the driver,
Thus keeping the cockpit intact,and no doubt saving his life.

Love this thread - what fun to drool over all the wonderful vehicles!

But gosh, that poor red sports car! Somehow I suspect it was a case of "too much car for too little driver", perhaps).

And to be able to build/re-build a car - true magic and thanks so very much for sharing!
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.
