C4 is good transmission. I have had several cars with C4s behind 289s
and 302s and never had any problems no matter how hard I drove. I'm
presently running a C4 behind a 65 289 4V A Code which has been
lightly modified. Mine is a daily driver (when I can afford the fuel)
which will be used around town and on cross country trips, so, I'm
leaning toward the AOD conversion.
If you're gonna do any traveling, you might want to consider an AOD
conversion with the soaring gas prices. You can check out the
information at www.windsorfox.com
(or is it www.windsor-fox.com
details and recommendations on donor transmissions, etc.
And within the past few days 66 6F HCS mentioned in the thread
"Finally chose the engine for my 68 coupe!" transferring the 4R70W
gearset into an AOD and get all the advantages of the wide ratio and
you dump the whole brain box PITA. Since he posted to you, you may
wish to inquire further about this. Sounds interesting.
