          What's "weird" about it, Dan? I simply interpreted the body tag. Walt went a bit further by defining the trim level (5) and the fact that the serial# reveals it to be a South Bend built car. It could have been assembled in Los Angeles or Canada and it's serial# would have identified that were that the case.

          I applaud your decision to hop up the Champion 6 instead of doing a Brand X transplant I think you'll find the 3spd O/D tranny a fun thing to drive, once you get the hang of it. It really offers you 5 speeds forward when you use it to it's best!

            Mr. Biggs,

            I was not trying to be a smart-butt-- and im not saying that was your thoughts either. Your info. on this site is just super.

            Thanks for your re-plys to my post.

            If it was not for folks like you and this BB I would have jumped into this project and learned a valuable lesson. SO it's me that should do the applauding

            When I get time after a day of either "tinkering" or working I slam into this www. I believe there are 60 pages of info. on here and I have checked out only a fraction of it's contents.

            So even though we "newbies" ask the same question we also check out the search but when that becomes tiring the best thing to do is >> ask a pro.

            Thanks so much and I hope to get more answers in the comming months.
