Re: 69 Cougar Revival
Yeah, a rebuilt FMX will cost around 1200 - 1500 or so in most shops, a rebuild on an AOD won't run much more. BUT, you will likely have to have the drive shaft chopped 1" and need a custom trans cross member (easily made). You will either need a TV cable kit - or a valve body that does away with the need for a TV cable (kinda spendy), but worth it IMHO. Art Carr makes the one I'd go for, but Silver Fox also has a good one. Might first ask the shop if they are willing to do a custom job first I suppose! lol The one shop here in town I trust to do trans work doesn't like doing performance and non-traditional jobs...... I have to go out of town to get a guy who specializes in them. I did the last two myself and I think I am done crawling around underneath!! That reminds me I gotta sell that trans jack!
