I got a low-mileage gearbox for $300. Granted a "classic" may be a bit tougher, but there are plenty of wrecks being parted out. With the 94-98 "NG" models you have to be careful in getting the right gearbox for your engine - don't know if this is the case with the older "classic". I would advise against installing a gearbox with the wrong ratios in it. These are closely matched to the power curve of your engine, and the variance can be high from one model to the other. GF
