TH400 3 Spd Auto - She is dead
So, just two days ago my 69 GTO was running great. Parked it to run inside to pick up my daughter from daycare, came out and gave her hell and the engine revved but no power to the wheels. Ugh oh! Yeah, took it in today and the transmission is completely shot. They don't even recommend rebuilding it, they're recommending remilling it. This will end up costing me about $2800 for everything out the door.
I don't need to stick to stock! I don't care if I keep this original transmission since the engine isn't stock nor paint color. The one I have is only a 3 speed and honestly, I'd love a 4th gear for highway driving. Do you guys have any recommendations? Should I stick with my 3 spd or buy brand new/rebuilt? I really wish I could do a manual but I know there is alot of work there and it would basically double my cost, which I don't want to do so I think I am going to stick with an auto. Any help would be appreciated!
