Used in Ford passenger cars, such as the Model A, up to 1939 and light pickup trucks, such as the F100, up to 1952, the early Ford three speed transmission was one of the first transmissions utilized for racing purposes, along with the Ford Flathead engine. Although they did not satisfy the need of most racing conditions, the three speed toploader transmission is still popular among hot rod restoration enthusiasts. Combined with a nice flathead V8 and the classic Ford banjo type rearend, the early Ford toploader transmission will give you an original driving experience, just like in the days of old. From replacement gears and release pins, to pressure plates and Chevy engine adapter kits, you can relive that one of a kind experience with the help from your friends at Speedway Motors.
