Question

I replaced the original 3 speed in my 68 with a Muncie. Now I have a big old dirty tranny and floor shifter taking up space in the basement. Is it worth it to hang onto it in case when I sell it someday the buyer really wants the car to be original, or should I put it up for sale? If sale, what's the combo worth (I know all the quips about whatever someone is willing to pay for it - I read the blue-light saga, I don't want to go there!). Thanks for any input.

Agreed.
It won't bring much $. And would be hard to find if the next owner wants it back to original.

We don't have a lot of data from manual 3 speed cars. If you would, you can submit it at http://www.camaros.org/researchdata.shtml .
Thx!
