    So when one of our boats were laid up for repairs, in dry dock after it was all done the ship had to go on sea trials to get the CC certificate
    I took the 69 out on its first sea trial after converting it to a 4 speed.
    All I can say is WOW, im really excited to drive it
    You guys were right on, its like a different car
    It performed well, although I was only driving around the block, roads were dry but still snow everywhere.
    Im feeling like its 1970 driving that car, shifting a 4 speed again
    Cannot wait until spring
    Did I say I was excited, LOL
    Thanks to a member here who rebuilt my 8 3/4 and my 4 speed.
    He did a great job
    Thanks to everyone who advised me

              Hope you enjoy it :thumbsup:
              I, someday, would love to put a 5 speed in my charger. Having had a ‘70 super bee 383 4 speed and a ‘68 gtx 440 4 speed, going to an automatic was a disappointment. I just miss stirring the gears.
