Using the Ford Type 9 as a donor box Ian modified the tail shaft, propshaft, gear lever assembly and had a new bell housing cast for installation into the Elite. These modifications allow the gearbox to be fitted with minimal alterations to the gearbox tunnel, making it an easily reversible process.
The overdrive 5th gear transforms the Elite for modern driving and, with a variety of gear ratios available, gives a number of options to best suit your requirements.
