    Yes there was a 4 on the tree. It was a Dagenheim tranny. I met a guy who built them for Ford back in the day. He said they weren't very good and had a lot of problems. I didn't ask him what kind. He said he had four that have never been installed in a vehicle and couldn't sell them after all these years.

    To me it would be. Not a lot of replacement parts out there but I have seen a few parts on ebay over the years. I was going to get one and that guy I talked to advised me not to.

    It was an option in 64 only. Like Mike said the transmission was made by Dagenham in England and was used in cars built by Ford in England. They used the same transmission in the 6 cylinder Mustang. It is not as strong as the standard 3 speed but I have owned several, two currently, with no problems.

    How come my replies are not posting???????? try it again, dratzzzz.
    The dag is well known for being a weak transmission, but also,,, the shifting ranges are said to be terrible also. Almost better having a three speed tranny.
    All the parts are different also. I just built a custom one going in a 65, using a 3 spd OVERDRIVE tranny. It will clean it up and look stock, Kinda?. Everything is different, and the upper support was typically broken like the rest of ours, so I sacrificed a later and stronger upper mount, and welded one up that was better. The 4spd is longer and different. Also, doing a 64 right now with the 4spd, blueprinting a 300 and an overdrivei in it also.... will be a real clean monster. Will try some pics again as a reply to this one,,,

    Try right clicking on the text in the browse box instead of using the "copy" box shown if this makes any sense
