How much should if cost to have a 1964 transmission overhauled. I have a "worst case" price from a transmission specialist of $2100. Is that too much?

That is a lot. About 3 times the going rate. You can buy a totally brand new Muncie trans for about that. The normal price for a Muncie rebuild is about $600 -$800 including parts, and that includes a new counter shaft. I would shop elsewhere.

Thanks

This was VERY helpful information! I will be shopping elsewhere! Does anyone know of a great transmission shop in the Altanta to Charlotte corridor?

If he's never done one, better to have a pro do it or to at least have a mentor there to inspect the work and to help out. Not being a nay-sayer, but it can be VERY difficult to determine the condition of internal components if you do not know exactly what to look for. It ain't rocket science, though. If the homework is done, it is do-able for a first timer who wants to dig in. Those little needle bearings are a PITA, though!!
