About Chevy 3 Speed Transmission
Your grandfather left you his 1953 Chevy pickup, and you have spent the last few years lovingly restoring every inch of the vehicle, from the interior upholstery to the fenders. Now you are ready for the last piece of the puzzle, so you have started the hunt for a Chevy 3-speed transmission. Common until the early 1960s, when 4-speed transmissions took over, these parts are nevertheless available on the open market for project trucks and other restoration attempts. Sellers on eBay offer a large inventory of Chevy 3-speed manual transmissions for cars and trucks. Some appear as General Motors or GM transmissions in the listings, while others bear the Chevy name. When you replace a transmission, you may also need to replace the gaskets, seals, and other hardware to ensure a seamless transition. Verify whether or not the Chevy 3-speed transmission you are considering comes with an intake manifold, as you may have to purchase this separately. Since these transmissions are fairly old, they may have nicks or scratches on the teeth or other physical signs of wear. Choose one based on its overall condition.
