That would be great if the trans didn't decided to give out. I'm in the middle of a auto to 4 speed swap so I got the car on ramps. I broke down around there on 141th and la grange once like 4 4th gen Camaros and a Firebird came out of now where and helped me out it was something out of a movie lol

Very nice,car like the color.I wondering why the trans broke wre you testing it in the alley.
Thanks but nothing compared to your orange 69 that thing looks MEAN!!!

HA no I was driving back from the bank and I guess I had no oil pressure in the trans cause it just started to make a loud thuddddering type sound and I barely made it home.Now it just won't move and the oil level is fine. I have a m21 muncie laying around so I figured about time I do that swap. I want to have the muncie and a 383 in it by next summer.

Very nice. Love the action shot. Was your car auto on the tree or console. I am going to do a 4 speed conversion soon. Just curious how the swap went and if there is any advise you have. I am covering from a column shift to M-20 on the floor.

It was a tree shift. The swap was pretty simple just did a lot of reading on this forum and help from the members. I forgot which thread just search Muncie swap and they break it down to a tee every part you need to do the swap and how to swap it. It was a pretty straight forward swap other then getting the input shaft all the way in it was a PITA!!! I kept checking with my alignment tool and it was fine I kept playing with it till it finally went in. Oh and check your rear gearing I thought I had 3.07's gear so I went with a m20 but it turns out I have 2.73's so I burn up my clutch a lot in first gear to get going. I'm in the process of building my rear end now 3.31 posi.
good luck with the swap if there's any way I can help ask away i'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge.
