Price for a T-10

Post by pfleuret »

There is a Craigslist listing for a dual pattern T-10 with Comet tail housing, price $600. I’m thinking of getting it in case I decide to replace the 260 with a later Ford small block. Just want to check if that price is reasonable. Seller says it is in good shape inside. No linkage etc. thx for any thoughts.

Seems like a good price. $400 would be better.
You should plan on a full rebuild and maybe a couple bad gears and synchro sliders to add to the cost when you decide to install it.

I ended up with three Comet t-10s for $1000 vs the one dual pattern for $600. I’m sure I can get decent money for the two I don’t need.

Man, you went all in. See if you can find two Mustang tailshaft housings on the cheap.
Those '64 1/2 guys might buy them. Don't listen to me. I may get you into trouble. Don't know the Cali market.

Is the one on the left an aluminum case t-10? If it is the case is worth a bunch to early Shelby owners if they need it and have the right tailshaft.

They all weighed the same when I lifted them into the pickup but I checked with a magnet at home to be sure. No aluminum. I did notice they are a lot heavier than the last time I messed around with car parts about 30 years ago.

I've noticed the same thing! Global warming may be a hot topic, but I think the increase in gravitational pull over the last 30 years is concerning, too! :shock: :lol:
