302w what trans c4, c6 and the c10

Hey guys (and Girls)

I have a slight problem

I am currently doing up a 65 XP coupe and dont know what trans to run. ive been getting all different reactions to the c4, c6 and the c10

I will be running a 302w, 9inch, little engine work (cams etc...)
i want a tuff streeter and cruiser and that wont be too hard on fuel

any sugestions

thanks for your time
Kind regards
kristian

My XP coupe is running a C4. no issues or dramas for me. If you go to the right place they can build up a C4 to hold a fair amount of horsey's.. No chassis mods bolted in with a Castlemain Rod shop cross member.

Weekender: Xp Coupe, 302 Windors, C4, Lime green
Currently looking for an 9 inch disc rear end.

Re: 302w what trans c4, c6 and the c10

if fuel is a concern you will have to either run a tall diff ratio, say 2.77, or have a later model 4 speed auto fitted, which would be tough, but anything is possible. All three boxes you have mentioned are 3 speed and can all handle plenty of horses if built right. Whichever fits the coupe best is probably the best option.

XC Falcon Sedan, monza red/jet black, 351C, twin 2.25" zorst, T5 V8-spec with CRS bell-housing, AU thermofans, 3.23 LSD diff, dual fuel, rally-pack spec, black/red interior, cruise control, sports seats, 17x8 ROH Drift-R's.
