DESIGNED FOR USE WITH ANY CHRYSLER '66-70 "A' or "B" BODY, or 2 W.D. PICK-UP or VAN- Slant 6, V6 or V8 ENGINE R.W.D. VEHICLE built since 1966.
 
 
LOWER YOUR R.P.M. TO 78% OF YOUR EXISTING ENGINE SPEED. (eg: If you now cruise at 3000 r.p.m. at 60 m.p.h., with our "Shortie" overdrive kit installed, you will cruise at 78% of 3200 = 2340 r.p.m.)

Now Mopar Owners can install an overdrive without major modifications to their floor* or critical crossmember.  
No longer do you need to consider using a converted inferior G.M. transplant, a transplanted welded on bellhousing, adapter kits or cumbersome extra long tailshaft units.
* In some installations, a small dent may be required in the floorpan to clear the speedometer adapter.

ONLY 7 1/4" LONGER THAN A STANDARD 727, an SMR "Shortie" overdrive transmission is a DIRECT BOLT-ON for all V6, A, B, RB, and 426 and GEN III HEMI engines in rear wheel drive Chrysler vehicles.  No floorpan or critical crossmember modifications are required. (No special fabrication or welding skills required)
 
Installation is a true bolt-in, requiring only the shortening of the driveshaft, in any car or 2 wd truck originally equipped with a 727, 904 or  3 or 4 speed standard transmission. 
 
This transmission retains:
  • -stock crossmember;
  • -transmission mount;
  • -stock cooler lines;
  • -stock shifter (except '62-65) and kickdown linkage;
  • -stock or heavy duty Chrysler flexplate;
  • -standard design Chrysler torque converter;
  • -stock starter and location; and 
  • -The full strength and integrity of the overall transmission is not compromised by removal of the original cast bellhousing to utilize an adapter that is welded on or bolted to the pump.  (Such a bolt on bellhousing places the full torque load onto the pump bolts which were designed strictly for the purpose of holding the pump in place).

Utilizing these standard Chrysler design components, makes service and parts replacement a simple task.

Every SMR 727"Shortie" OVERDRIVE KIT includes:
  • -the Overdrive unit and "Shortie" housing
  • -"Shortie" output shaft (to replace your standard long 727 output shaft) ('62-'75 planetary spline only);
  • -5 GPZ High Torque, High Energy CLUTCH plates, matched steels and selective snap ring, to Increase the Direct Clutch capacity (to handle the added load of the overdrive);
  • -Pump and pan gasket and new filter - to allow you to complete the installation of the internal components  
  • -all wiring and activation switch;
  • -overdrive shift controller (which can be set for automatic or manual shifting);
  • -speedometer cable extension;
  • -heavy duty slip yoke;
  • -an OPTIONAL lower shifter support bracket (on models that wish to utilize the factory console shifter); and
  • -Detailed Instructions. 
Each unit is custom calibrated based on rear gear ratio and tire size to provide accurate automatic shift points and correct speedometer readings for the specific vehicle in which it will be installed.
