    I know there's a lot of opinions, but I'm trying to have a general idea what is a fair (and reasonable) price for all this sold as a bundle?

    Flexplate, Bellhousing, 833 4-speed transmission (66), Inland shifter w/3 rods, Rubber boot/trim ring, 4-speed pedals, 66 floor hump (nice), steering column, Z-bar with frame brackets, etc.

    I was thinking in the $1200-$1500 range?

    Sounds about right if everything is in good condition, maybe a little less. I am not a fan of the inland shifters.

      In Florida that might be a little on the cheap side. It would be very rare to find the whole kit as you describe, usually it's a piece here and a piece there. Good luck.

      The car is all there and the only thing missing is the driveshaft. Looks like it bolts on to the transmission yoke. Other than that, it's all there.
      I thought there was something different with 66 floor humps? Is it that the hole is oval VS round?

      66 is oval. If you have a 64/65 ball and trunion 4 speed that will bring your price down.

          The big problem with the early A-body four speed is the wide ratio gears (3.09 first), small clutch, and 904-sized output shaft (on the '66 slip yoke). Maybe a '66 setup would fetch $800, but I seriously doubt that you'd get near that for a '64-65 trunnion setup. There are people who want them, but your pool of buyers is pretty small compared to the later setup.

            More expensive to build a '64-'65 trunnion setup... Don't ask.

            No, there is an adapter but I don't see the point. Nothing wrong with the Ball and Trunnion probably better, but they just typically bring less money. My 66 is in Greenwood, SC.

            Flexplate? You mean flywheel don't you? If it has a bolt on flange for the driveshaft, it isn't a '66 model, and the earlier cars didn't use the Inland shifter. Sounds like it may have been pieced together. A few photos would help I.D. everything.
