This removable transmission crossmember kit for 1963-79 Corvettes from American Powertrain makes the installation of a transmission or driveshaft in a classic Midyear or Shark Body Corvette much easier.
The precision water-jet cut steel brackets are specially contoured to fit the original transmission cross member and are welded in place so the original cross member, which is fixed in place from the factory, is easily removable without affecting the rigidity of the chassis. No complicated measuring or material removal required.
This simple solution requires only two quick cuts on either end of the fixed crossmember and a little welding to install. Once complete the normally arduous task of wrestling a tranny into one of these cars becomes much quicker and easier.
The kit comes with the brackets, grade-8 hardware and instructions and is compatible with all 1963-75 Corvettes along with 1976-79 cars with factory manual transmissions. Spacers in image are not required they are used to show mock up.
