It was bolted to a 350 small block Chev.

700-R4 it is, then. I quit my hot-rodding ways back in the late 60's so anything that happened after 1972 or so wasn't on my radar. I was thinking that it might have been a Turbo 400 but wasn't sure. Seems to me that this tranny has a lock-up converter on it and for that reason, many hot rodders find it desirable for fuel economy. Do I have that right?

I'm going to sell it so my next step is to figure out what it's worth. It's been sitting for 20 years wet but a tranny shop would still have to go through it most likely. Hard to say what might be sticking from non-use after that time frame.

A lockup style converter is nice especially if you are running a high stall. Lock up converters are expensive in themselves but if you wanna go fast and have fuel economy you gotta have a wallet that likes to spend.

You could always see what they are bringing on ebay to get a guesstimate of how much to try and get out of it.
