After we scored a complete short-extension four-speed setup from a junked late-'70s 318 F-Body, plus a set of A-Body swing pedals at a swap meet, we were ready to work on our Dart. Find a good place to work; this'll take awhile. Get a set of good H/D high-lift jackstands and raise the car for working clearance. Next, the automatic comes out. This 727 was nice and strong, but there's nothing like banging gears with your right fist.
