I think the headers were hard to come by for awhile. Clark's lists them as in stock now. Anyone know if they truly are?


PS

There's a complete Wills big car Saginaw 4 speed transaxle on FeeBay now.

[cgi.ebay.com]

Is there any interest in a new run of the Wills adapter plates?

The mid engines are nice, but I would love to get a hold of what ever kit was used on this car. John what kit (if any) did you use?

"ED: I love Vairy man...but ADE Super Vair is the KING!!!"

Phil, I must agree, I have eyeballed the pics of the ADE Super Vair for many hours, it IS the king of the V8's!
IF I ever get back your way I NEED a ride in itsmiling bouncing smiley

As a owner of one of those 1 of 25 Wills big car saginaw kits I will have to mention that half the Wills kit is missing from that auction, the shifter adapter!

You DO need some sort of linkage "converter" to make this work.

I spoke to that dude, he has the missing shifter parts but they are not for sale,he needs it for his new Saginaw/C5 setup...

Pics shortly of everything , including what is missing from that auction.

Before anybody gets the wrong idea here, that is my auction on ebay missing half
the kit. I would be happy to provide any info and pictures to help the next
owner to completion if needed. I would like to thank Ed for helping me out by telling me that there were only 25 adapters made. Anyway, I also have some Crown things for sale. For $600 I have a Crown 4spd with the adapter, frame rails, front seat cover and the headers...sorry no shifter. The stuff is not perfect, but it is definitely good and useable.

Thanks.

Bob

Definitely good stuff, I love my Wills conversion.
A copy of the Wills shifter could be made or perhaps something with morse cables.

Heres some pics , first my complete setup,with a fancy Crown shifter , then some Wills shifter parts pics.

Well all I got is the one, I am sure someone wants it, the price is the same with or without the rest of the Crown stuff. All offers considered tho.
