First runs on the car were at Great Bend, 2014. then 5, 1/8 mile testing runs in 2015 and 3-4 runs in Bowling Green 2016. Sad to sell it.

I'm sure people are wondering why I would sell this car. I have other plans for Ronnie's last race motor and If I let this body set around to long my son and daughter will want to stuff a 7 or 800 HP Duramax in it. I would like to see it stay within this forum community if possible. I also have a 62 bubble top, a 70 Corvette, 3 trucks, two race car trailers and a dog. I've run out of room and this car needs to be inside rather under a cover outside. The Russell and Taylor banner will fly again soon!! I hope everyone understands. BT

Most likely,since it's a dedicated race car,I'd go with an electricly shifted power glide.The second choice would be a good street/strip th400.

Don, I'm sorry for the name confusion. When we first got the white 62 it came with a turbo 400, so I left in for our first runs on the car, then two weeks later went out with the powerglide in and it ran almost identical times. The T400 was quicker to the 330' and the P.G. was quicker from the 330' to the 660'. MPH was 1-2 more with the P.G. The T400 was a lot more fun though.

No problem,Barry.I've been called worse,sometimes for good reason!:laugh4Those of you who I've been blessed enough to meet know that my right arm/hand doesn't work.This would make shifting problematic.There's a transmission company in Texas called Trans King that markets Powerglide with brake that shifts electricly.I had one in my old Altered and just loved it.
