Hey guys need some help here.. Ran across a 4-speed toploader out of a 66 coupe. The guy says hell sell tranny linkages flywheel clutch pedal assembly and pedals for $900.. is this a good buy? I opened the gear box and all the gears look super good. Also can someone tell me how to see if its a close ratio or not?? here are some numbers i got off the tranny..
Side of housing: C5AR-7006-0or8 W-2
Bolt Tag: HLH BW 016876
any info would be appreciated thanks...

It's probably an HEH-BW from a '66 Mustang w/289. See this chart,

A HUGE difference! The wide ratio tranny has a nice low 1st gear and the tranny will give you a few more H.P. to the rear wheels too.

Depends on the rest of the motor, but a 3.80 to 3.90 would be a safe bet to keep you under 6000 RPM through the traps.
