AAAA Transmissions

Daisy's chassis is still in Fort Worth at AAAA Transmissions.  She's going to be spending a few days there while Gary, the transmission guy, gets her set up with this super cool, new transmission.

Actually, even though the transmission will be new to Daisy, it isn't a new transmission.  It's from a 1984ish Ford F150.  Gary, who has been working on Model A transmissions since he was knee high to a grasshopper, takes these old Ford F150 transmissions,  modifies them, puts them back in Model A's and presto!  Double clutching is no longer required!!  It's a synchronized 4 speed transmission with the over-drive built in.

From what we could find out, there are only about 3 people in the US that does this sort of thing.  We were tickled when we came across Gary and the fact that he was only as far away as Fort Worth.

We are sure looking forward to the day when we get Daisy all put back together and can try this new tranny out!
