Mild Modifications / Re: 700R4 conversion in a '68
« on: November 03, 2005, 04:49:15 AM »
I swapped out the TH350 in my '69 for a 700R4. Used the original crossmember but had to reposition it slightly and shorten the driveshaft a bit. With the manual lockup she works great and purrrs on the highway. A buddy is a tranny expert and built the 700R4 at his shop. He assured me the 700R4 was preferable to the 200. Find a good tranny shop and get them to build a good one locally rather than mail order. It will pay off if you have installation or setup questions.

Restoration / Rear End Housing finish/color???
« on: November 03, 2005, 04:42:32 AM »
I am restoring a '69 and not sure how to refinish the rear axle housing?

What was the factory finish?

Is there a website or book that explains proper factory finish for proper restoration?

Thanks.. Norm

Can anyone explain the date code format on YA wheels for me?

I have wheels with MI/9 - 2 - 8 - YA codes.

I know my car is an October build car... could these be the original wheels??

Thanks very much...
