    Also price depends on what trans you are getting it for. Usually the oned for a th400 cost the most. I am getting a 400/205 with driveshafts and crossmember and everything to convert my 89 for $500.

    If you buy it from a person, it should be between 300 and 500. 500 for a completely rebuilt one. I found mine at a junk yard and paid 150. All it needed was a little cleaning, ok a lot of cleaning, and new seals. It took me a while to find the one I was looking for though.


    Good things come in small packages. Good things come to those who wait. So, if you're waiting for a small package, that must *really* be sweet.

    I see your from Washington, it all depends on the Washington market (supply vs. demand) and luck. I have seen guys pay 400+ for one and I have seen guys stumble upon ones where the person who owned it didn't know what they had and picked it up for 50. From what I have seen, if you are buying from someone who knows what they have and it is 100% working it is going to cost 200 or so. Add more for a 400 version and if you want the adaptor and shifter. Again it's going to be supply and demand, if you can find alot in your area you may be able to talk the price down, but if there is a limited supply expect to pay $$$.

    Now you guys don't bring no guns, bats, knumb chucks or no knives. It will be a fair fight with fists only. Last one standing with cash in hand will get it.

    I'm running a Ford NP205. First one was $20 (Cdn), 2nd was $50 (Cdn). I think I'll get the 3rd for another $50 after seeing this thread... Was given a Dodge 'case too...
