There's plenty of 4 speeds out there to be had a fair prices and most
of the ones that came out of compact cars that had V8's behind them
will bolt right in. Meaning trannies that came out of Camaros, Novas,
etc. The 5 and 6 speed varieties need are a little slightly different
matter though. crossmembers will have to be moved and driveshafts
will have to be altered. The good news if you are really interested
in putting in an overdrive tranny is that there are kits out there
that make them a bolt in swap. The T-56 6 speed is by far the
strongest OD tranny that you would likely be using. Go to some of the
message boards on sites like thirdgen.org, fbody.com, fbody.org,
camaroZ28.com, camaroforum.com, pro-touring.com, etc. There's others
and the spelling may not be correct on the ones I wrote above but you
get the idea. Do plenty of research and I'm sure that you will find
what you are looking for.

Some are wise and some are otherwise
Yeah, that's true, I don't use my old Camaro to commuting to work....but I
don't want to
have a car that's REAL bad on gas. I once owned a '68 GTO that had a built
400, you could
actually see the gas gauge going down when driving on the highway, but it
was a lot of "fun per gallon"!
i went from a mild built 307 in my 1972 nova that still got almost 18
miles per gallon to a 383 stroker that gets about 5 mpg and i love it,
its worth every penny. i am using race fuel and i still dive it alot
but i dont pass many gas stations and its alot of money to take it out
bt its well worth it. the only bit of help is is this motor is wild in
any way 383's can hae ballance problems and if not built right can not
last very long.
