    Seemed like a good deal. Only 1975 or older that I could find within 100 miles. replacing all lights, trim, front fenders, rockers, floor panels, inner fenders, radiator mount, Grill, 350 engine, exhaust, dash pad, doors, window regulators, door interior panels, window cranks, Kennesaw Mtn bmprs w/winch, 6 lights, rear quarters, and tailgate. How difficult will it be to swap for a 4 speed auto? Nerf bars (welded on), dual batteries and leather seats out of 2000 Silverado. Whats the best sealing soft top? Oh yeah, roll bar from sterling and bed liner instead of carpet. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    soft top - STC, we get a discount as members. I have one on my 72 and love it. I sold my hard top because I will never go back.

    What about the 4 speed auto. Anyone got experience or advice about putting a newer 4 speed auto in place of the 1973 three speed auto. I could use some words of wisdom. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I have no clue. I just want to know if there is a 4 spd that will work with this vehicle. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    sm465 (manual) transmission is a very poppular swap.
