I have always liked the idea of stick cars. I know they aren't as efficient, but nothing beats rowing a stick car, listening to the rpms climb. With the Cadillac build for the 36 coming to the forefront, I decided to look and see what a few thngs cost to build a nice 5 speed setup. DANG! $2300 for a Tremec, $900 for a bellhousing, $400 for a clutch, pressure /plate, $600 for a slave cylinder/hyd throwout bearing setup. Not counting Flywheel etc. I may need to rethink this. I know I can probably source the slave cylinder out of a production car and fab some brackets. Not sure that a production tranny would fit right in an early Ford, as far as shifter location etc. Plus the Caddy make need something a little beefier for the torque. I REALLY would like to make this happen, but I am not giving up a kidney to do it. Any ideas for saving a few bucks?
