Maybe buying 71 Grandé for parts
#1
I am in the process of getting a 71 Grandé from a guy for parts. He does not have a title for it and no motor but i believe everything else is there. If i get this thing this week i will probably get the parts i need off and then part it out. I will have to part it out quick because the wife doent like all my cars sitting around too long Tongue So to just give you guys a heads up if anyone is looking for parts. Let me know and if i get the car this week I can get back to you and let you know if i have the parts you need!

Thanks Kevin

Ya it is a four speed car, but thats mainly what i want it for. But i have a pile of work done to my c4 and just put in a B&M 3000 stall converter. Good shift kit and clutches in it. So i kinda hate to take it out but would really love a four speed in there. Decisions decisions!!

The four sped stuff is gold around here so, get it and hang on to it if nothing else.

He sent me some pics of it tonite and it looks really solid. looks like the bellhousing is the only thing missing off the tranny. How much do these trannys usually go for?

Just depends on the numbers on the tag and condition of it

Thats what i thought. But he claims its the original tanny to the car. If it still has the door tag info would i be able to check the trans code on it? What would the letter be for a four speed on the door sticker?

Well the guy told me it was originally an auto car but the previous owner swapped the 4 speed in. He said its a saganaw wide ratio. Any good??
