1981 Mustang Transmission


The transmission in your 1981 Mustang is one of the most satisfying parts of driving your pony car. Whether you’re crusin’ down your favorite stretch of highway or gunnin’ it on the racetrack, nothing beats the feeling of stomping the clutch, rocketing into sixth, and hearing your pony car roar. But when you’ve been using your transmission for years, it can wear down and make shifting obnoxious.
