Re: [Chrysler300] 4-speed equipped 1963 Dodge





My '65 Barracuda which I ordered in Sep '64 is factory equipped with an 833  4-spd.  It's not likely that I'll ever be able to break it with my 273 engine.  Great gears now with 240,000 miles.  I'm pretty sure that all of the A-body cars equipped with 4-spd in '64 had 833 transmissions.

Yes - Dick Landy and Ronnie Sox and others had 4 speed B Body race Hemi‎ cars with the new Process 833. They dominated Super Stock in the late '60's. Once in a while Grumpy Jenkins (in a Chevy) or Dyno Don (in a Ford) won but the Hemi's were "Voodoo" (just like their old ads said.)

Just to supplement the 4-speed thread....

 

I owned a 1963 B-body convertible that was factory equipped with a 4-speed transmission.

 

Galen Govier documented it as one of 17 built that year with a GM (General Motors) supplied transmission.

 

Sadly,  to me anyway, , the factory engine was a poly-head 318 2 barrel.

 

I recall some heated discussion in the past to the published availability of a 4-speed available in the 300 J

and to my knowledge it has never been completely disputed. (The rumor persists that there is one out there) The trans would have had to be an outsourced

unit, not a New Process 833.

 

Finally, I believe there were 4-speed equipped Hemi B-body SuperStocks with the NewProcess 833s

 

My .02 cents
