$3200 was the quote for the complete kit from Keisler............ but our buck was good so it was $3000 CDN!! Kit is complete with: back up light harness, speedo cable, new balanced driveshaft, new clutch, shifter. But I will use the original shifter and maybe even the 4 speed knob??? The kit is a simple direct bolt in.......... no hacking, cutting or banging!!!!!! About a 4 hour re & re they say!!! This is a brand new tranny and should not be confused with the Tremec (which went under and a lot of their workers are now with Keisler!!!)

Soooooooooooooooo.......... should I sell the numbers Muncie, 4bbl intake/carb set up???? I figure the car is worth more with the current set up anyway????

Souunds like money well spent! Looks nice too. As far as selling the original trans and intake.....I wouldn't but it depends on your budget, and if the rest of the car is "factory".... Eric P.S. that's a beautiful 65 ya' got there!

PHS documented, Iris Mist/Black........... all is from the factory but I think it'll get more with the added extras. These GTO's are fading, monetarily (in your market anyway) and not too many of them around these parts.

Thanx Ric

Congrats on your new purchase. You will love putting her in 5th on the highway, sheer bliss.

IMO I'd hang on to you're #'s matching tranny, if you do sell, having it will increase the value that much more because it still is all matching #'s if thats important to the next guy. I even have my original motor and trans, who knows, it may even go back in one of these days.

Don't break up the numbers stuff from the car. Even if you have no designs on selling it, the completeness is worth saving and will be worth money if you ever sell the car.
