Does anyone have a 4-speed manual trans that will fit a '57 Chevy. Will be installed with a early 60s 327...would prefer Muncie but will look at any. If so let me know the price plus shipping.....thanks, Bill

Bill, I have a Freshly re-built Muncie 4sp M-20 I was holding onto for another project, but have now changed my mind, so, it's available for a fair price. I'll shoot you a PM and quote you a price.Does anyone have a 4-speed manual trans that will fit a '57 Chevy. Will be installed with a early 60s 327...would prefer Muncie but will look at any.

I have two New Muncies in stock both have the new Muncie Super case and matching tail housing with all new gears
Thanks Don, but I bought a Muncie M20 in Hattiesburg, Ms. out of a '68 Chevelle for $500. Has been rebuilt before the owner decided to install a Tremec 5-speed. Even has a Hurst Super-shifter mounted on it. It has a 10 tooth input shaft and a 27 tooth output. I got a good deal. I will be selling the Hurst shifter with reverse lockout, because I want to get a Hurst bench seat shifter......Billkaraokekng , I have a low mileage super T10 with shifter , clutch and the big yoke . It came out of a 77 Z28 driven by a pretty red head back and forth to University of Maryland. (53,000 miles) I would like to get $650 for it but the shipping would probably kill you . Don
Mike, I have just about everything I need for the conversion back to a manual trans. I found a '57 bellhousing on ebay,new z-bar, the original clutch pedal, the rod from pedal to z-bar, and both frame mount and bellhousing mounting brackets for z-bar. I am looking for the linkage from z-bar to yoke and the yoke itself. Right now the car has a TB350 with bellhousing mounts. When I put the manual 4-speed in, will I still be able to use the bellhousing mounts and do I need a support brace under the transmission? It has front mounts on the engine with no support under the automatic at the present. Any info will be much appreciated......BillBill,do you have all the rest of the stuff you need to install it?
Don't forget you need the fine spline input on your driveshaft to use the Muncie.
And I've got the M-20 in mine with a 3:36 rear.Does great!
On Aluminum Muncies-Make sure the seller has the side cover off and the trans drained and gears cleaned up with some brake parts cleaner. Never buy a trans with gear oil over the gears and synchros. It hides problems. Also make sure the synchros don't spin in their housings and the 6 keys and springs are in place. Check the housings for leaks and repairs to bolt hole threads. Check the teeth on the synchros on 1st , 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears especially the input shaft synchro as they are expensive to replace. Check the front bearing retainer for cracks. The 63-65 Muncie M-20 4 speed with the 2:56 first gear would probably work the best for you. Hope this helps JimThanks guys for all the responses. Since I started this post, I have done some calling around and found a gentleman in Hattiesburg, Miss that has six 4-speeds; 4 Muncies and 2 Borg-Warners. I'm taking a little road trip (about 75 miles) to look at them. Hope he has an M20; he wasn't sure without checking. Thanks again, Bill
