    That's pretty cool. I've never seen one of those. When were those manufactured?

    The Dana 3 speed was made in the 70's. By the same Dana Company that makes car and truck rear ends.

    Love the Dana 3 speeds but for some reason they've managed to become a bit pricey over the past year.
    Makes me wonder why :39:

    I just got the Dana in the mail yesterday. I haven't done anything on the Shelby since I've been working on my Bronco, it will be finished in a few days. Then I'm going to jump back on the Shelby again.

    I finally got a chance to play with the Shelby a little tonight. Mocked up the Dana 3 speed. Since I can't use a skip tooth chain with the Dana I'm going to use a 2speed kick back hub with the Dana.

    Now that's a cool way to get 6 speeds!

    Love where you're taking your build . . . and really enjoyed all the cool Fords in the background. Not a Chevy in sight.

    All Fords at this house, and we have a lot.
    I got a lot done today on the Shelby. I used automotive lacquer paint in a rattle can. In an hour I was waxing the paint and starting to assemble it. My old school 6 speed is awesome. I got the Dana 3 speed adjusted it wouldn't go into 3rd. The Bendix kickback is working great. I did get to go for my first ride tonight.

    As bad as my day went with the Shelby yesterday, I came up with a name Jinx.
    I built a new front rim, yesterday and went to a smaller front tire. The Carlisle Lightning Dart rear tire was a bust also. So I replaced the Lightning Dart with a new Bontrager 2.35 rear tire. The handle bars had little chrome left and a lot of pitting so I painted the stem and handlebars metallic gray.
