    I hired a local transmission shop to build a 700R4. I've got to work out all the details for upgrade options but it should be done in a couple of weeks.

    Time to hunt down a junkyard 3:73 and we'll be on our way with the drivetrain.

    Very nice

    Unlike a car show on TV this build will not be done in an hour:D

    Is this thing on?

    Ain't that the truth? lol I hope to have the wife rolling in it by mid summer. We still have to do paint and interior as time and money allow.

    More progress pictures from the son. He said it took a bit to get the cast smoothed where the letters would look right. Clear coated the whole intake afterward.

    I hope your son works faster than you do Larry.

    Scott would have had that car done and crashed by now!

    James :)

    I got the build kit and torque converter (2600 rpm stall) from PATC http://transmissioncenter.net

    Dropped it off with the shop Monday. I ordered the crossmember and speedometer gears today.

    Got a couple new books to help along the way.

    Hey Dickhead, get out of the fast lane! Unless you're passing of course.

    Thanks. I made some progress on the car.

    Pulled front facia and core support off. I was originally planning to just pull the engine and transmission straight up and out but, after looking at the condition of the body bushings, I think we will go ahead and lift the body off the chassis.

    Wife just picked up the 3" shortened driveshaft from Ron's Driveline in Gainesville today.

    Stay tuned for updates pics lol. I'll have to get some pictures uploaded so I can share them.

    I would suggest going ahead and stripping some of those head bolts now while you have it out....just get that shit out of the way right of the bat. Ha ha
