This is pretty much non-mustang related, but have any of you heard of a Clark 240V 4spd tranny? I am looking at a Cobra kit car produced in Brazil (I'll be moving down there next year) that uses a 302 from a Maverick and this Clark transmission (never heard of it) driving a 12 bolt chevy rear end. This combination was used because of local parts availability. The good part is I'd be able to build up the 302 however I want it :)
If all this comes to light I think though I'd ship a rebuilt 4 spd toploader down there like I have in my Stang, these to me are the bulletproof trannys of all time.
For thise interested, this is there website:http://www.autoweld.com.br/cobracar.html

Hi, I don't know what the 240v is all about but I know Clark built some heavy duty truck transmissions. John

It is becoming less of a mystery. apparently it was a locally made gearbox very similar to the toploader 4spd. I am going to take a look at one when I am next down in Brazil. I am a big fan of the toploaders, if this box can hold its own I may go with it though due to price and availability of parts etc. These are the boxes they put on the locally built Mavericks, they bolt straight up to the 302 bell-housing, the 302's came from Canada (Windsor).
