    Forgot to mention that as we were loading a guy stopped on the side street and came wandering over to chat with the PO. An obvious hot rodder he was interested, and wishing it was his trailer instead of mine Said he had a '34 Show Me roadster, and "...a few more...", then asked, "Do you need a flathead to drop in it? I've got a '53 with high compression heads, a 3x1 Edelbrock setup.... that I'd like to sell." We talked a few minutes, I got his name & general location and will probably go see what he's got one of these days.

    Roger, one of the chevy truck boards I'm on has an A833 4 speed listed on there for $250. 4th gear is an OD in them and a chevy bell housing can be obtained for it. Let me know if that's something you might be interested in and I'll get you the link. Ryan.

    Ryan,
    Thanks, but I promised Mama that this one would have an automatic. I've been looking at 700R4's from Monster Transmission & Performance, but I'm going to run into town Monday or Tuesday and talk to the guy at the tranny shop there. He just might be interested in the TH350, and he can probably get me a 700R4 and build it to hold up to ~400/430 HP & torque. If anyone has another performance tranny supplier that you like I'd like to hear who.

    A question for the Deuce guys. On top of the frame there are six threaded inserts to hold down the body, and immediately in front of the firewall there are four additional threaded holes in a cluster, labeled A, B, C & D in the pictures. Before I just weld them up and smooth them off can anyone tell me exactly what they are for on an OEM assembly, by the letters?

    Here's a couple thousand words worth, you're actually short the front most hole (or maybe the back most for the foot), though the glass body may not be oriented the same as a stocker. Front pair (of yours) for firewall feet (or whatever equivalent the body has), back two for cowl of body/front of subrails (again, glass body may vary)

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    Jerry, Wescott has drawings that dimension the holes, but they don't identify the purpose for them, only relative positions.

    Thanks though....

    Bob's got the lowdown for you on the real steel bods, on the 'glass cars myself and I would imagine many others use these wholes for fender and board brackets....if you're doing a hi-boy just weld them.

    Roger, As I told you on the phone, after body is mounted just weld up the holes not used. C&D are used for stpck foot firewall A&B who knows, po could have put them there B4 he painted chassis.
    Re: Tranny, talk to your guy about a 200R4 ( same size as a 350 externally) or just use the 350 with the right gear in the rear.
    Built many with 350/350 a 2:79 rear gear and a 32"tall rear tire that got well over 20mpg runnin stout SBC's

    I'll have the body over on the frame tomorrow to get it back into shape after five years on a dolly, and check the gaps. Don, as we discussed on the phone I'm interested in what the "other" holes were for so I don't weld up something that I might want in a couple of months I'm still contemplating what "look" I'm going for with the hood, whether to run top only or top & smooth sides, or top & smooth sides with some unique "accent" feature that also exhausts heat.

    On the tranny, I've looked at the 200-4R and with the "heavy duty" build it will just cover the rated power from the stock ZZ4 and I really like the deeper OD that it has. It's easy to boost the ZZ4 by 100+HP with some upper end work (intake, heads, cam & more carb). The TH350 is the same, needing the "third tier" build to cover the power and having no OD. The 700R4 can cover the power easily, and the OD is OK at 0.70. I know that there are a lot of 350/350 packages out there, but if you push the output much the tranny may not last and I like to cover the bases on reliability, no matter if I'm keeping it long term or passing it on to someone else at some point.

    Running the 3.00/1 rear gears in the pumpkin now will work for cruising with the TH350, but I'm not sure that I can stand the anemia of first and second I'm leaning swapping to 3.89's if I go with the 700R4, and maybe for the 200-4R too.

    Roger, I beg to differ with you, but have had many 425 - 450 hp 350's with stout 350's or 200r4's behind them, and never a problem.
    This 1 I sold to a buddy in Nor Cal 6 years ago and he's still got the same 350 in it and it's been drivin all over the place on long trips since he's owned it.
    You'll see the car @ LARS and the proof is there.
    Also have anutter out there with over 50'000 miles on it with a 200r behind a fire breathin 377 cu in SBC in it and no problems.
    Ask yer buddy @ the tranny shop what tranny keeps him in business and he'll tell ya a 700r4.
    They fail more than 350's and 200's

    You're probably right Don. I'm just going from the numbers that Monster posts on their site - GM Transmissions, Chevy Transmissions, Chevrolet Transmissions Now they're dealing with warranty, so they are likely very conservative plus we're talking a super light roadster here where they have to cover heavy weights in their numbers, too. Then you have the Buick GN's launching wheels up running 200-4R's so that's another vote that it'd be good here, too.

    Like I said, going to visit the tranny guy tomorrow and will see what comes from that. Regardless, I appreciate any input that anyone wants to offer, especially from guys who've built as many as you!!
