How exactly do you hook up w engines to two transmissions, using only one clutch????


Cookie: It could be done in a factory setting, but it would be a disaster for a garage project

The best information I can find says that it ran a Cadillac transaxle in the rear, with the 253 hooked straight to the harmonic balancer/ crankshaft of the blown 350. The 253 acted like a giant starter motor for the Chev, or something to that effect, apparently!

Honestly, mate, this thing was the custom car of the 80's!

What was the idea for this? What was he wanting to achieve?

I once saw a '57 Chev, again back in the '80's, that had two gearboxes, running inline. The front 'box was a standard four-speed, while the second 'box was, if I recall correctly, a two-speed powerglide.

The car was intended to be used for both street and strip. The builder, instead of going for quick-change diff, added a second 'box (the 'glide), into which he installed gear ratios that would essentially give him the equivalent drive ratios needed for each application.

Sounds like he was trying to accomplish the same thing as the guy with the '57, aside from the whole drag racing thing.

I think I've shown you guys this car before. It is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most amazing donor engine you will EVER see in a street-legal car!

I think it demonstrates, perfectly, that nothing is impossible when it comes to building custom cars.
