Please help. I have a '64-'65 Muncie M-20. I found the website TheGearBox.Org AKA The Gear Box Transmissions LLC and I would like any info bad/good are they legit? I don't want to loose a few hundred dollars to a fraudulent website, it happened several years ago and you can't do a damn thing about it. They have no physical address and clearly state NO LOCAL PICKUP. They have an email, the phone and fax number are registered in Michigan and a alternate phone number registered to a 60+yr old at a residence in Florida. Thank You in advance my friends for any of your time or info
Truly: KiD :confused:

IF they STATE NO LOCAL PICK-UP & don,t want you to know where they are located....thats a HUGE RED FLAG!
THAT VIRTUALLY SCREAMS SCAM in 10 foot tall flashing neon lights!!!!
ID NEVER DEAL WITH ANY PLACE LIKE THAT, and yes we all get screwed trusting places like that so ID strongly suggest dealing locally if you can or with a WELL KNOWN shop with a long track record of GOOD DEPENDABLE customer service
they may be totally legit! its most likely some guy working in a home garage, but, a bit of experience and common sense suggests, ID sure check for complaints with the STATE and LOCAL BBB PEOPLE AND READ THOSE COMPLAINTS BEFORE DEALING WITH THEM
IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

Its a guy working out of his home garage likely.
Maybe on forums like this looking for sidejob work.
Maybe not a scam.
Most privateers are on forums.
Waiting for Racetracks to open here in Midwest.
