tranny match BBC

Hi there,
I have that 65 Malibu project with BBC
have a chance to buy both a M-21 or a
Super T-10.
My question is which is going to enjoy being
behind a BBC without twisting, cracking or chewing
up gears? Plus on the 1/4 miles, "how many guys are
still running 4sp? or are they just not as fast as say a
Turbo 400, which I already have, plus a power glide.
I watch that show "Pinks" sometime times and I can swear
those guys are shifting a 4 or 5 speed.

Thanks in advance

Back in the day. I raced a high horsepower big block Nova. Broke many Muncie trans and 12 bolt rears. Went to a 2.64 low S T-10 and cured the trans problem. then a Dana 60 cured the rear end problem. Now I would use a Ford 9-in.

You may not be able to shift as fast as a
automatic, but something about old chev
BBC, 4sp just makes for a nice ride.

Back in the early 80's I had a 65 Mustang fastback "Shelby" clone, looked just like the "R" model. BUILT!!! 356" Windsor 4:11 9" rear and a top loader 4 spd..........FUN!!!!! couldn't even imagine driving that car with an automatic.

I used close and wide ratio muncie trans in my bbc Chevelle in high school... beat the tar out of them. Couple of cluster gears broke teeth.


When the clutch came apart at 5k RPM one night (no scatter shield) , that started my automatic transmission experience.

I agree a 4-speed is great to drive. Nothing like a squeaky clutch pedal and an old buzzing/rattling hurst shifter. I have a big horse 66 427-4-speed vette its a ball and I usually walk the automatics on the big end. I'm also fixin to put one behind my blown hemi plymouth coupe.

Try it you'll like it!
