  • HVDA 5-speed conversion kit

    I got a call from Moss yesterday evening and they are now selling the HVDA kits. I can finally get my engine and transmission remounted in the chassis.

    What's the markup over what Hermann used to sell them for?
    I'm really not that interesting...

      I don't know if the price is the same for all models, but the kit for my '71 is $1999.

        So it's without the W58 tranny, unlike their kits for other makes? I think most or all of those were more $ and included a gearbox.

          The guy asked if I already had a transmission and since I did, I didn't inquire about their options. I assume they would either leave it up to you, or recommend someone like Jim Cox or the other guys that Herman recommended.

            So broadly comparable iirc. Nice that they stepped up to do this.

                The invoice lists it as the HVDA 5-speed conversion, but I don't think that it is on their site yet. I think they are contacting anyone that was on the "interested in buying a kit" list when Herman died first. They were making some revisions to the installation instructions this week and I was told that it should ship next week.

                    So by the time you get a used W58 it comes to about the same as a rebuilt A or J type from Quantum with more gears. I thought it would be cheaper.

                      I bought one from Herman but would like to see what they have changed in the installation instructions if you are willing to share!
