I had a set of those (14") on my Chevy II for a while. They are nice wheels for the money.

Just put in a Richmond 5 spd. The car is fun to drive, and cruises nice with overdrive. Had to cut a hole farther back and a little bigger, for the shifter to come through, but worth it. Other than that, was mostly a simple swap for the muncie. Shift linkage is tight in the tunnel, but fits. Don't know if the big block mounts help with that or not, but I think so. If everything was any farther left, I would have had to bash the tunnel some I think.

That should make for a better launch...with an extra gear for the highway too. Is that a 2.83 first gear?

I really dig your car

I assume that is the 2 1/2" exhaust system?

Thanks guys. The exhaust is I believe a flowmaster 2 1/2" kit. It was on the car when we got it.

First gear in the Richmond is 3.06. Jegs had it underpriced a couple months ago so I pulled the trigger. It showed up tuesday. It drives nice, I was worried about the gap between first and second, but it's not bad at all. Shifting is tight, but I've read that it will loosen up after being broken in.

It fits, but the 3-4 shift rod is pretty close up top, maybe 1/4" of clearance, but does not hit during driving. The shifter also sits high on the tail housing, so most of it is through the floor. Had to use a bigger boot to cover it all up.
