Installing a T-5 Transmission into a '41-'46 Chevy/GMC Pickup
This is only one segment of my ongoing project of building a 1942 Chevy hot
rod pickup with a straight six motor. It's just the basic major steps in
swapping out the old noisy granny box for a more modern Borg Warner T-5
overdrive transmission. It's the best upgrade you can make to these old
trucks. The heart of the whole project is the adapter plate. The music was
written and played by...............Me! All by my lonesome (multi-track

5.0 Mustang GT rebuild
This is my 87 GT that I bought back in August of 2002...It was basically
left for dead in the backyard of its previous owner. I only paid $375 for
it with no motor.
It had a long list of problems including...Transmission only had 2 working
gears,cracked winshield,headlights,tailights,old peeling tint,bent cowl
panel due to the hood flying up,alot of surface rust,and some bad rust on
the hatch,door and passenger front fender.The interior was full of trash
and dust, since they left the window down.
I ended up selling this car after it came along ways to its what was
current estate...but unfortantly the kid I sold it too trashed it then sold
it to another owner who trashed it even more :(.
I then ran into this car in summer of 08...offered to buy it back,went to
go pick it up,and he sold it from under me to a guy who scoops up local fox
bodys and parts them out or destroys them:(. I only wish I knew what
happend to it so I could restore her again...but anyways thanks for

Not been actually Dynoed to find out, nor have I
been to the track to know a quarter time yet
ran the car this last weekend (10/19/08) in the 1/8th. only run 2 passes
with a best time of 9.824. The biggest problem I had was traction. I spun
through 1st and 2nd gear, and got to 3rd at the end of the track and spun a
little again. One of this winters projects will be to install a locker of
some sort. Next will be bigger tires.
*Update 7/21/10* Finally got new wheels and tires and a locker, but went
ahead and upgraded the ring and pinion while I was at it. It now wears
165/80-15's in the front, 265/50-15's in the rear on Summit brand Weld
Draglite style wheels with a Detroit Locker and 4.62's. Hopefully soon I
will put together another video with everything included....
