      Anybody have a correct trans to bolt in? The car in the o/p is an automatic. I am due for another vacation. Steve

        I've got the correct AT for a 65/66 V8 in my folk's garage...

        Like a lot of us, the price on the car is right but the distance is a bit far

          I paid scrap value for my '64 Cruiser, which was $400 this past December.

            Sean, if you have room at the new "hacienda", i'd cover her up and wait for a suitable trans to show up at a nearby salvage yard or T-85 owner in the northwest. no way should you let it go to China!

            put her up on ebay, a "Turning Wheels" ad, maybe other sites, if you really want/need to sell her right now.

            if she doesn't go to a good "Stude home" (Dave? ), i think you'll have a bad case of "seller's remorse" - as i did with the Avanti and especially the '40.

                I'd like to find a T85 OD. All I need is the R11 OD.

                  The T85 is a manual. I'd like to find a T85 OD. All I need is the R11 OD.

                    I will not let it go to China. That much I can assure you. I received two more emails regarding recycling from the same company. In a few delicate words, I more or less told them to pound sand.

                    Right now it is sitting in my garage and there is room outside. And If I can get some gravel put down in the near future (it is a grass strip as of now), the 65 will be pushed outside and parked on the gravel so that the 60 can be pushed in. I hadn't thought about putting an ad in TW. I would really like it if an SDC member were to purchase it so that I know it is going to a good home.

                      I parked an MGB GT on those 18" x 18" x 2" concrete pavers - and then covered it with a tarp. It stored like that for about 3 years. I can understand not having $$ for a project, but this appears to be too nice to part out / scrap. Like the others, I suggest you 'hide it' - with tarp and - you might even use some fence posts and a 4' x 8' section of lattice - that hides stuff really easily. Then, you just need to uncover it on nice days and let it air / dry out....

                      Save some cash (over a year, or so) & get the tranny rebuilt.

                      Or - sell it - advertise it more than here and C/L - get the word out - these venues are good, but limited.

                        I would like to have this car as a year around driver but shipping from wa. is not going to be cost effective. Now if I could talk some of the guy's into a road trip. Hum.

                          on a side note, anyone looking for a 1943 WWII Stretcher or 1940 Washington plates? Both are also for sale.

                            I'd definitely hold out and keep it like your planning. I remember that car when the Bells had it, but as then as now; I can't afford to pull the trigger on it. (Which is sad, because I work along side my dad in his transmission shop...) Those transmissions turn up used or even as a older rebuilt unit fairly often if you look in the right places. A 700R4 would be the "bee's knee's" as far as conversions to it would be; it would be a wonderful driver then.

                              You know, a transmission isn't that heavy. If someone had a working transmission, they could arguably ship it to Washington and then fly in, do the swap, and drive home, which in the end would probably cost less than having a transport service ship the whole car. You'd get a decent car and a fun little adventure in the process.

                                Make me an offer? Worst I can say is no. I am moving on from this so that I can focus on the wagon. This was/is a fun car... cant lie about that.
