Decent price for a '63 Spyder 4-speed tranny and diff?

Hi guys,

A friend wants to buy my 63 tranny and diff. They came out of a 63 Spyder, 4-speed, and 3:55 ratio with posi.

I have no idea what a reasonable price is. I don't think anything major is wrong with it. Gears all work and no funny sounds and doesn't get stuck.

Thanks fellas

$200-$250 would be very fair. As separate parts, usually 4-sp transmissions are $150 and diffs $200 for good used.

I have also read that the 63 is the only year they made all four gears an equal distance apart, like this:

63: |.|.|.|
1 2 3 4

64: |.|...|.|
1 2...3 4

Yes it is a posi

Craig replies: Sorry but that's incorrect. 61-3 4-sp used in cars all carry the same ratios with the unloved wide gap between 2nd and 3rd.

In '64 the 4sp changed design with a new layout that eliminated 2nd gear synchronizer issues and new gear ratios. 3.20 first gear vs. the earlier 3.65 first gear, and evened-out ratio gaps between all gears.

I missed that it was a post, for that I'd say $250 for sure.

When you are buying, the prices are sky high, and when you are selling, the bottom falls out of the basement. Pick a price that both of you can live with.
