I was hoping that was an orbital wheel on that trike...guess not. Still pretty bad ass though.

Ironic; I just unloaded 2 Hemi engines into my shop this morning. No blowers, tho.

Alison made a 4-spd auto ?

There is gotta be a misprint. The lowest gear numbers Allison makes is 5-speed.

B-702 is eye candy.

What displacement and what are your plans for them?

A quick internet search shows Allison did indeed make 4-speed automatics...they appear to have been used in RVs, school buses, etc.

Yes they did.

I used the verb makes not made. :) Currently the lowest number of gears Allison makes is 5 speed found for transit vehicles.

I like the headlights on the B-702. I've seen them on a few other cars before. Is there a name for that style?

Those are called Woodlites, a period aftermarket accessory from the 1930's.

Then why has there "gotta be a misprint" then?

Because since there is no additional information on the website about the B702 mechanicals, I thought he picked a brand new transmission off Allison's shelf rather than fitting an older 4 speed.

'56 DeSoto 330 and a '57 DeSoto 341. Both apart. Plans are to flip them. Researching values...
