Wouldn't it have been cheaper to get another car? Or are they saving this car purely for the sentimental value? Doesn't seem like it's that rare a car to go through all this.

try searching the classifieds over on the H.A.M.B. They are dedicated to pre-65 hot rod and truck stuff. Lots of them running 6 cyl's and lots of connections there.

good luck on the search.

I've done cast iron Saginaw 3sp in/out of a nova on my own, so not impossible, but certainly you have to be in good shape. Definitely easier with a trans jack, or at least a floor jack. If you have...

+1 on the extinguisher. Somewhere, maybe a Haggerty bulletin, I saw the most common insurance claim for older/classic/hot rods is for fire damage. A little damage is better than a write off.
