Rebuilt 1972 BB trans, last 6 #'s are 194322. Does anyone have this car?
Will consider selling to someone who needs it for a 1972 Stage 1.
Unfortunately, this car is not listed in the registry.
Over a year ago, I posted in another thread warning people about a 72 Stage 1 that was for sale in Brunswick OH. It was Flame Orange / white interior.It was badly misrepresented in the Ad and I took alot of crap about "letting it go" or the "one that got away." Anyway , if someone on the Board knows who bought it, I do remember that it had an incorrect Pontiac trans in it, and this would be real close to original. Just trying to help!:TU:
I would like a BB for my Stage1 but my VIN is 173680.
Just for the gee whiz file, what does a BB trans cost, vs a regular T400. I have heard there were differences in them, but dont know what. Seems like people make a big deal of them.
The BB is a "factory" prepped Heavy Duty 400 turbo.
The guys at the plant threw in a couple extra clutch plates, some valve body mods, and a different governor.
Basically the same is done when someone builds a 400 turbo from an Electra for HD street use. A shift kit, some HD clutches, and a HD int sprag is installed, with some governor work.
Unless you own the car the tranny came from, I reckon it's just another core.
I agree 100% Glen.
Don't pay a premium on a non-numbers transmission. :beer
OK so what is one worth that is rebuilt and ready to go in the car???
Just a question.. how do you properly decode a transmission...where do you get the numbers, i may have seen a nice buick bb tranny the other day and i just let it go.:blast:
The info you need can be gathered from the Tag (RH SIDE) or the Vin stamped along the pan rail (LH side).
