    So is this a guess or a fact?
    Does that mean it could be anywhere in that range or one of the 2?

    I ask because my dad is about to buy an overdrive tranny and we have a 65 Rivi rear end so we need to know.

    Thanks for the help.

    Does it have a removeable rear cover?

    The Grand Sport '65 had a 3.42 rear gear.

    The standard '65 had a 3.08.

    That's according to the GM literature. That said, I've seen a '65 with a 3.58 gear in it, but I think it was special order.
