yea dads 72 compact 8e was butchered when i got it from scrapyard and original trans went out within 4 months of me getting it running i stuck a 66 4 speed custom tranny in it. well i told him tonight hes getting the backhalf of this frame and this trans he was excited to have a hi and low trans. i checked both machines over and frame swap will happen within the next week with no drilling or mods. heres a picture of the 8e
