Hello everybody, glad to find this site. Just got this 1966 Bel Air 4 door sedan.
Very good shape in general, it's got a 283 and Powerglide. Just brought it over from Winnipeg, where they don't use salt, so the underside is in really good shape. Driver's side rear quarter panel is rotted out, but I have a spare fender.
Motor runs strong, but the Powerglide has an issue: it won't go into gear at all once it warms up. Anybody have ideas what is might be? Am I looking at a total rebuild? Thanks in advance for any input.
Sorry to break it to you, but it is time for a rebuild of the old slush box. As stated more gears are better. Why stop at adding one when you can add two more with a four speed auto matic that improves off the line performance and gas mileage!
I drove it around the block a couple of times on the weekend, and it shifted fine. I'm going to change the fluid and filter first and see how it goes. I've been told a clogged filter might be the issue.
