“IS ANYONE STILL USING 4 SPEED TRANSMISSIONS?”
Still using a 3 speed........
M22, Hurst RamRod.
Four on the floor for me.
In 1959 I swapped complete Olds engines, Hydramatic trannys, and rear ends, into a couple of cars, and my friends thought that was a smart way to go. There were few inexpensive, strong, 3 or 4 spd trannys available so we used what we thought would hold together. Nobody cared.
Yep A833 behind the hemi
Yup...an M21 in my 68 Zapper, M21 in my 66 L72 Biscayne, M22 in my 55 Chev Gasser and a 833 in my 66 Hemi Satellite...
I’m just finishing up a build on a 32 coupe. Running a super T-10.

Have a M22 in my daily driver 57. Race car has a A833 4spd. 57 wagon (not running) has a Super T10. Would love an aftermarket 5spd in my driver but have never quite had the funds for it.

My T has an A833
My '57 has a 327, T-10, Hurst shifter.
gave away the th350 I had in the garage and picked up a muncie from a 67 vette. hot rods have 3 pedals is what i've heard.
I am building a 30’ Ford roadster with a 354 hemi (approx 410 hp) and am now deciding on a manual tranny. Trying to keep my build 60’s style and am thinking an A833 (Passon o/d)? Looking for thoughts on how the shifter will sit in place and any other advice - pros/cons ? I will be doing a fair amount of highway cruising.
Richmond Super T-10
What are you using for belhousing? adapter?
Yep.....Muncie out of a 69 Camaro with Hurst shifter.
I really like the interior in the car!
What is the steering wheel out of? I have a similar one out of an early '60s Caddy that I am planning on putting in my '51 GMC.
Yup... The new Arin Cee Roadster has a wide ratio Muncie M20 - a little too new to be "period correct" but it's bulletproof and fun to drive, and those are my primary considerations.
Thanks. The wheel is from a 1961 Chevy Impala. I had a 59 Impala in it for a while but everyone uses those so I wanted to be a little bit different. I have done the door panels since that photo was taken. I guess you can tell that I love yellow.
So do I. I'd show you a picture of the firewall on my GTO but since it is too new I'd get flamed for it.
I'd show the rest of the car but the firewall is the only part that is done.
per T 10 in my 31
Yeah boy. All cars should be stick. 55 with a 4 speed. Don’t ask what motor ....
original t 10 in my 63 Cat
4 speed Moss. late 50's. (I think)
23 spline A833 behind the 426 Hemi here
Had a Muncie and a 327 in a 53 Stude.Until a drunken idiot rear ended me.That WAS a fun ride.
Good luck.have fun.Be safe,
Can't take the credit for the build and the builder may have been advised by the Nailhead guru Russ Martin. One of the last 4 speeds used, out of an early 80's Camaro. Real low first and second gear which allows for a high geared rear; ~3.0:1. With 16" rear wheels, it is like having an overdrive and works great. Especially after getting rid of the leak prone hydraulic throw out bearing and going with a slave cylinder.
M20 in my roadster
At this GNRS I Saw more 3 pedal cars than I've ever seen... The 4 speed is definately not dead....
No bell or adapter yet. Those T-10's look to be rated for 375ft lbs torque. My 354 hemi has 410 ft lbs torque with 400 hp
1962 Rambler Classic 400, 343 V8, 4-speed
1930 Model A, 283 w/2x4s, 4-speed
