Car pics too cool not to share

So what's the consensus on the 700R4? I just remember when it first came out, it was a complete pile of crap - but nowadays it seems to be well regarded.

It grew into the 4L - 60 which isn't the worst trans. A 700R4 can be built into a Okay street Overdrive trans. but it 's not T - 400 tough.
If you just have to have a juice box trans , a 4L - 80 E is strong , but large and needs a controller.

Yeah, for the little bit I’ve seen, I’d say that Ford would be on a similar level, just smaller package. At least there's no carpet in the Ford. :sneaky: @Mike_H are you a glutton for punishment?

Not quite. The ford would be a crazy big project. If I were to pull a car out of the woods, it would be that Willy’s wagon I found a couple years ago. At least that one speaks to my passions.

Good to know - when it comes to autoboxes, there's the Th400, and then there's everything else.

For you old Hot Rod readers;

Update: MotorTrend Host Steve Magnante on the Mend and Coming Back!​

America’s beloved gearhead says he’ll be crawling the junkyard again soon!​

Checked on that very thing yesterday, and saw some good reports. Had no idea that he need a tracheotomy (that, according to the report I read). Sound like he was in some seriously bad shape. Glad to hear he's doing better.

Weak. Real transmissions only shift once. ;)

CS1 Standard Design
lntroduced in 1972 as a 2-speed the Standard Design LENCO is our largest and strongest transmission. Most often seen in supercharged alcohol and mega HP nitrous cars the CS1 Standard Design LENCO is also commonly used by Pro Mod machines and blown nitro and alcohol drag boats.


The CS1 Standard Design LENCO is recommended for the most severe applications and is capable of repeatable consistency with a minimum of maintenance. Engineered to handle 3500+ HP the Standard Design LENCO is available with up to 5 speeds and comes in a cast magnesium case. Lever or CO2 shift.
 
Did you check out the link in my post. It looks as though it's something they put together and sell.

I did. They don't offer a trans with that specific code, which is what sent me looking to see what's out there. I keep finding sites claiming the 700R4 was recoded by GM as the 4L60, then they added the electronic control. I'm interested because I'm looking to swap out a powerglide, but don't want to jump into electronic controls, which limits me to a 200R4 or 700R4 as far as I know.

That's what they did. When they introduced the computer controlled version (4L60E) they rebranded the 700R4 as the 4L60.

So my earlier post is a little misleading... you can convert the 700R4 (4L60 non-E) to work with any non computer controlled vehicle.
