Welcome to the best place for transmission adapters available. Our transmissions powered the MSRA Street Rods of the Year in 1999 and in 2000! (We were runner-up in 2001) Two of these cars were in Blackies invitational show & one was the NSRA midwest pick! We have built and worked on many more noteworthy rods since then.

 

Check out the polishing on this Shelby aluminum block engine using our FE to AOD adapter kit! Nice job!

 

 

This adapter can be used on the FE or Y-Block engines. It has a dual bolt pattern machined on it.

You can use any small block Ford trans or Modular motor trans. The 223 Ford 6 cyl kit is similar. Scroll down for info.

 

 

 This '55 Chev owned by Gary Kollofski won Best of Show at the Car Craft Summer Nationals.

This car was built in our shop by Dale Pelvit. 730 cubic inch, all aluminum 12 cylinder Hemi, built in Italy.

Suicide doors using all stock Chev door hardware, flip front, flip hood, 4L80E built by us along with the trans adapter.

3 650 Holley carbs, Distributorless ignition, much more.

You can see this car on Holleys website or in the upcoming Car Craft magazine.
