TKO-600 5-speed manual transmission install in a 1969 Chevelle


Apr. 2018

 

Overdrive transmissions provide many benefits to longevity and fuel consumption, and they are more fun to shift than automatics. The V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew installs a Tremec TKO-600 from Modern Driveline complete with a hydraulic throwout bearing assembly for easy action and a MDL clutch for positive grab behind the big block Chevy V8 in a 1969 Chevelle. The Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission handles 600 pound-feet of torque and the Modern Driveline kit puts the shifter in the original position on our 69 Chevelle.

The 1969 Chevelle

V8 Speed & Resto Shop had taken on this 1969 Chevelle as a project car in the past. At that time it was outfitted with a TH400 automatic. After driving it for awhile, the customer decided that it would be a better driving car with a manual transmission. Some of the specs of the original build are:

  • 462 C.I. V8
  • MSD IGNITION
  • EDELBROCK INTAKE
  • HOLLEY CARB
  • HOOKER HEADERS
  • 12-BOLT 3.42:1 POSI REAR
  • MAGNAFLOW 3" EXHAUST
  • 17" ROCKET RACING WHEELS
  • BFG TIRES
  • OPGI RESTO PARTS
  • TMI LEATHER INTERIOR
  • STANDOX CARBON FLASH PAINT
  • RED SS STRIPE
