About Ford 3 Speed Transmission
The admiring glances you used to get in your vintage Ford have turned to glares of irritation as your pickup clanks every time you shift gears. Get some of the love back by replacing the worn out Ford 3-speed transmission. This transmission was popular in Ford cars up to 1939 and light pickups until 1952. Although it was not a racing transmission, that did not stop gearheads from taking it out on a spin because new gears or replacement transmissions were inexpensive at the time. Although newer, state-of-the-art automatic transmissions offer improved performance, if you want to your Ford to be just as it was back in the good old days, you need a Ford 3-speed manual transmission. It also makes it much easier to replace the part without making major modifications, which could involve some drastic cutting of the chassis. Early 3-speed transmissions do not synchronize into first or reverse gear, but they still offer a pleasant driving experience. When you are restoring a Ford and you want it to be as close to the original as possible, find a Ford 3-speed transmission in the large inventory on eBay.
