hello .
we are going to by a 79 lebaron with a 318 4 bbl and a bad trans.727 i assume? this is a fairly nice car . the owner can put it in 2nd and break the tires in gravel ? no other gears seem to work .ive been in a 727 before (reverse band)what might be wrong with this one ?

Could be the 1st-reverse band. Is the bad tranny reflected in the purchase price?
does first and reverse use the same band?
wouldn't the trans still shift from 2nd to 3rd?
which trans kit will this need?
will a autozone rebuild kit be ok ? or somewhere else?
Well, I have the title now, just have to bring it home. It was WAY cheap. Going to do a re-build. Car was $175. looks good, sounds good. :p
