Howdy. Any thoughts on getting a spare tranny for my 99? I want this car to outlast me, so I'm trying to get some major spares into the shed.

Just don't do what we did --

In 1998, I bought a 1976 99GL from a charity/insurance auction for $200 to get the transmission from it to put into my 1974 99LE and keep the one from the 74 as a spare.

Ended up fixing up the donor car and keeping the other one going too. Do NOT do that! Stay the course and just find your tranny. Suggest that you reach out to some of the few folks who rebuild the 4 speed transmissions to get one. Then you can install it in your car yourself, have your existing one rebuilt and put it on the shelf.
