Weird, and fabulous.  I wonder how well finished the rear area is?

I suspect a trunk from a sedan was grafted on to the 2 door cab of a same year El Camino.

We were discussing the short term American fascination with 4speed overdrives in the 5 speed thread a while back.  I am fixing a 84 Bronco with such a thing just now.

I thought it was a regular 4 speed, and was trying to imagine the diff ratio based on rpm at 60mph...

Nice sticker.  Much info, so knowledge.

I was unaware that Ford did crap like that too, given that they were the ones who basically brought 5-speeds to the masses.

This one is a truck box, based on the shifter feel.  Haven't looked under it yet.   I drove a Zephyr in high school that had a car sized one, as well.  1977?

I actually bought one of those boxes to replace the factory 3 speed in my 69 F100 many years ago and never used it. The front of the trans is identical but the tailshaft is longer and the shifter bolt pattern is staggered instead of the normal 4spd. It came ot of a 302 Granada. I kept it for decdaes after selling the truck because I thought it would be great for a light weight rat rod build, but I gave it to someone on this board whose name escapes me now.

ON JULY 20, 1969, AS COMMANDER OF THE APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE, NEIL ARMSTRONG WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO SET FOOT ON THE MOON

HIS FIRST WORDS AFTER STEPPING ON THE MOON, "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND," WERE TELEVISED TO EARTH AND HEARD BY MILLIONS.  BUT, JUST BEFORE HE RE-ENTERED THE LANDER, HE MADE THE ENIGMATIC REMARK

 

"GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY."

 

MANY PEOPLE AT NASA THOUGHT IT WAS A CASUAL REMARK CONCERNING SOME RIVAL SOVIET COSMONAUT.

HOWEVER, UPON CHECKING, THERE WAS NO GORSKY IN EITHER THE RUSSIAN OR AMERICAN SPACE PROGRAMS.

 

OVER THE YEARS, MANY PEOPLE QUESTIONED ARMSTRONG AS TO WHAT THE 'GOOD LUCK, MR. GORSKY' STATEMENT MEANT, BUT ARMSTRONG ALWAYS JUST SMILED

 

ON JULY 5, 1995, IN TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA, WHILE ANSWERING QUESTIONS FOLLOWING A SPEECH, A REPORTER BROUGHT UP THE 26-YEAR-OLD QUESTION ABOUT MR.GORSKY AND 

THIS TIME HE FINALLY RESPONDED BECAUSE HIS MR. GORSKY HAD JUST DIED, SO NEIL ARMSTRONG FELT HE COULD NOW ANSWER THE QUESTION.

 

 

HERE IS THE ANSWER TO

"WHO WAS MR. GORSKY?":

IN 1938, WHEN HE WAS A KID IN A SMALL MID-WESTERN TOWN, HE WAS PLAYING BASEBALL WITH A FRIEND IN THE BACKYARD.

HIS FRIEND HIT THE BALL, WHICH LANDED IN HIS NEIGHBOR'S YARD BY THEIR BEDROOM WINDOW.

HIS NEIGHBORS WERE MR. AND MRS. GORSKY.

AS HE LEANED DOWN TO PICK UP THE BALL, YOUNG ARMSTRONG HEARD MRS. GORSKY SHOUTING AT MR. GORSKY,

"SEX! YOU WANT SEX?! YOU'LL GET SEX WHEN THE KID NEXT DOOR WALKS ON THE MOON!"

 

It broke the place up.      

NEIL ARMSTRONG'S FAMILY CONFIRMED THAT

THIS IS A TRUE STORY.
