They really don't have any real value, not worth shipping. Whoever wanted it would have to be local...

You put For Sale in your title.  Maybe edit it to For Free?  To add to Patcons' comment, many of us have our old 4 speeds in the garage, From our own 5 speed conversions.

And don't throw it away.  Somebody will give $50 just for the front case, so they can convert a late model 5 speed (the 71C) to fit the L6 engine.

Wrong side of the country. These are great autocross transmissions with a closer 2-3 gearing. I would take it in a heartbeat as a spare. I am putting one in now for next season.

That's a good point.  1974 is the last of that set of ratios.  It's 1975 and on that has the big 2-3 jump that people don't like.  A 1974 4 speed is not the same as the typical 280Z 4 speed.  Might be worth putting in the title also.

I would have it just for the bellhousing to swap on my 71C. Just thinking about shipping it scares me a bit :cry:

If it wasn't for the shipping, I would be happy to buy it. Last one I tried to buy here, he wanted €250 for it, as is...

My 71C project has been on hold ever since...

I would be very interested, but not for the shipping. It's oversized and heavy.

All I'm looking for is a front section for my 71C I want to mod for my L28. I have a spare cross member already modified and an early 70 propellor shaft. Just need the bellhousing.

Post a picture.  Stand it on end so that people can imagine it taking up not much space in their garage.  Put two starter bolts in so you don't damage the input shaft.  Put a bow on it.
