I scored two complete but disassembled Buick 455's (one was a
1975 and one was a
1976) along with a bunch of
other parts for $100 from a guy who was cleaning out his garage due to moving
and needed to get rid of this stuff on a deadline. It was a hell of a deal, but
I will use the motors instead of them going to the scrap yard, so it was a good
Here's the complete list of stuff:
- 1975 Buick 455 -
completely disassembled and cleaned by a machine shop in preparation for a
- 1976 Buick 455 -
disassembled into it's major pieces and not yet cleaned.
- TH400 transmission with converter - BOP pattern, "long tail". The tag
reads "76-OR-47257". This should be out of a 1976 Electra.
- TH400 transmission with converter - Chevy bolt pattern, "short tail".
This case stamping is "147464696".
- Chevy 3-spd manual transmission with output yoke - bare, no shifter or
bellhousing. Main case casting #'s are "GM5", "385-8986", and "H166".
Tailshaft casting #'s are "3860042" and "GH166". Main cover casting #'s are
"GM1" and "385 8992". It has a 10-spline input and a 26 spline output. My
research says it's a 60's era 3-speed, the seller I got it from said it came
out of a first gen Camaro. If you can decode this and confirm it works for
you, go for it.
- Chevy small block cast aluminum finned valve covers
The two TH400 transmissions and the Chevy 3-spd manual transmission are
