    I can't seem to find a pic of my '65 which is the same as a '66.
    However- this is sorta the same~



    but TOTALLY different.

        Nice conversion from the 'Ribbon Type' original '57 gauges, to the Hawk style SW gauges by StudeDave '57!

          Sort of Dan. Zip Vans although were made with 6 cylinder engines were equipped with the heavy duty cast iron transmissions that had the drum parking brake on the rear of the trans as on the big trucks. They did have a first gear start but also were "water cooled" in that they had cooler lines running from the trans to the radiator. Taxis didn't have the parking brake drum on the trans & the standard 6 cylinder cars had aluminum cases & no cooler lines.

            Howard,

            I have a flightomatic trans that came with my 230. I am not sure of the condition of it, but if anyone needs a core they can come and get it.
            Great show yesterday.

              Great look, Dave! I think that is what I'd like to do with my overdrive 57 Champion. Were they a slip into place change, or is some other fitting work required?

                Thanks guys! However, I can not take credit for that work, as it was done to the car by the prior owner. Just last week AlexM posted a video which showed that car and her owners back in 1969. Dad bought the car back not too long after...

                Jim- I'll see what I can do about getting pictures of Betsy and compare them to Baby.
                Since they are both currently in the same garage- along with Jewel- it'll be a snap!!!
