Hello everybody
My name is Ryan borg and I live in Melbourne, Australia.
I have a 1961 series 62 convertible which I imported from Florida.
I look forward to sharing and gaining knowledge from these forums as the Cadillac scene over here is pretty much non existant.

A question that Im having trouble finding information on is would I be able to swap the hydramatic transmission over to something abit more modern like a T400? Would there be much engineering work to do or would it bolt straight in?
Many thanks
Ryan

1. Welcome :thumbsup:

2. Post your question in the RWD forum appropriate to your Cadillac :D

3. In my own very amateur and inexperienced opinion, I would imagine there likely is some way to achieve what you are wanting to do. There is a large time difference between the car you have and the trans you want, but anything is possible with enough work and money. Good luck! :excited:

:welcome: I know it's been done, but I don't know they kept the 390.

I am puzzled. I owned a 1962 series 62 convertible back in the 1960's and I don't remember the transmission in the car being at all annoying or a problem. So it amazes me that you would want change the one in your car.

At any rate good luck with your car and keep us posted!
