We’re excited to be celebrating 25 Years in business.


First and foremost we want to thank our customers.
Because without their trust in us, we would not be here to enjoy this milestone.

We are very fortunate to have Car Guys & Gals on our team who work with our customers
who love… the change of the gear, the pull of the lever, and the art of clutching just right
MDL has grown and is ever-evolving and will be there to help realize those dreams & visions.

We have had the pleasure of partnering and working with some of the best shops, garages, and custom builders in the business.

The relationships with manufacturers such as Tremec and Quick Time are just a couple of the top-tier companies we’re proud to be associated with in our 25 years so far.

Our passion for modern driveability in classic cars has become today’s MDL.
We have enjoyed so many years in this business because we never lose focus on why…
It’s all about the love of driving. 


How it all began.

In 1996 Bruce Couture Owner/CEO purchased a 1965 Mustang hardtop that needed restoring.
The Mustang was equipped with a V8 automatic to be more fun the car needed a manual transmission.

A T5 five-speed was chosen for its size and drivability. While searching for conversion parts.
Bruce found there were very few companies offering five-speed conversion parts or complete packages.

It was this search that showed a need for better-fitting parts that are easy to install and long-lasting.



Where we’re going.

MDL’s staff is growing and adding expertise all the time.
We have new products on the horizon being designed, tested, and soon released to continue our tradition of innovation in this industry.
2023 promises to be the next best step in the 25 years to come.
