1936 Nash 400 OD Transmission Question

Overdrive was an option and not a very common one at that. Most car makers bought their transmissions from an outside supplier like Warner. It was the transmission specialists who made the overdrive transmissions. They were available as optional equipment on most cars from the early thirties to the 1960s. After that 4 speed and 5 speed transmissions were the rule.

I knew that about most cars but wasn't sure about the Nash.  I guess I should take the cover off and see what it looks like inside. 

I wonder if there are any Nash folks out there looking for this transmission. The car itself is too far gone to restore.

These days a lot of people want overdrive transmissions. Prewar cars are geared very low and are uncomfortable at today's highway speeds. Overdrive makes them a little less nerve wracking on long drives. You should not have any trouble finding a buyer although, Nash is not the most popular car out there so it may take a little time.
