Yeah, I got a similar impression when I talked to him. I might see it this weekend I'm going to Pensacola.

I asked the seller for pictures last week and still have not received them. He still claims it is a T-56 from a V6.

I'm leaning towards a Tremec TKO 500 or 3550. It seems easier to install and I can use my mechanical linkage. I usually don't drive over 70mph so it will work for my application.

Ordered TKO 500 transmission yesterday. I need to take measurements for a prefabricated drive shaft and determine if my clutch is 10.5 or 11 inch

Re: T-56 in 69 GTO.

The TKO-500, 9 piece kit from AMP performance on ebay was $2414 with shipping. A new clutch disc $99, GM A body 68-72 offset shifter $249 and the drive shaft $399. I was going to cut and weld my own drive shaft but I have no way to balance it and did not want it coming apart at 3,000 RPMs. I have enough metal available to fabricate the transmission tunnel.
