         My wife says I can buy a newer muscle car   no more old cars with cursing and swearing coming from the garage

         Your wife may be correct, as you have many many cars to work on and play with   After all these years on Cdn Poncho, you never did show us all your Chevrolets

I guess you would have bought it with a 396 or 427? Nice car.

 I didn't think the TH400 was offered with the 327 in the big cars until the 1967 models, but I do remember back in the early 1970s (actually 1974 through 1981 in Dundas, Ontario) a mint, seemingly all-original 66 Impala convertible with a 327 and a 3-speed auto shift indicator in the dash. It did not smell like fresh paint; it looked like a mint, untouched original. Lemonwood Yellow with black top & interior, all proper stuff like whitewall bias tires and virtually no visible modifications to indicate that the car was work-in-progress. I have always tucked that 66 Impala L30-M40 sighting in the back of my mind for future verification. Too bad I haven't seen the car since 1981 and therefore have never had the chance to check the engine code.

I have heard of and seen documentation on some pre-production stuff making it into cars the year before they were thought to have been offered. A 400 small block in a 1969 Chevy big car is one example (it was a COPO). I have seen a 1968 Chevelle with factory documentation with showing a TH350, in fact...

The above documentation went with a 68 Chevelle Malibu convertible with a 327 / TH350. The TH350 was not released to the general public until the 1969 models. First it went into the GM Staff pool for evaluation before being sold as a used car.

Maybe the 327 TH400 was being tested in the 1966 big cars before becoming a factory combination for 1967.

the 400 series trans were 1st. used in the full size US Pontiacs, Oldsmobile & "maybe " Caddy in 1965!!!!! Don't know when the full size "CHEBY" got them but think it may have been a "option' in 66 ?????

Pete, the TH400 was first used in Chevies on the U.S.-built 396 cube 325-horse 1965 Impala & Impala SS. Yes, it was one of the many changes that Chevrolet made during mid-year 1965 in the U.S. I believe that it was actually used before 1965 in very limited instances, perhaps as early as even 1961(?) in certain series Cadillacs, then soon after certain Bonnevilles only. I may have learned that from a 1971 edition of Petersens "Complete Book of Transmissions and Clutches".  Anyway 1965 marked the first widespread use of the TH400 in cars like the big Olds 88/98, Buick LeSabre/Wildcat/Electra (not sure about the 65 Riv). Canadian Chevrolets & Pontiacs didn't start offering the TH400 until the 1966 models, and officially just behind the big blocks.

By 67 the TH400 could be had with a small block but they sure don't seem to surface a lot. Years ago I bought an insurance wreck, 67 Impala 4 dr ht TH400 that had been a 327 originally.

Some twenty years ago we would seek out 1968 Pontiacs because we believed you were almost certain to find a T400 in it. Rumour was GM had a surplus of them. Anybody else hear this tale?  I have a 68 Impala here with a 307 backed by a T400.

I seem to be loaded with TH400's oddly enough in my parts/project cars. I've got one 66 Parisenne with a 396 and TH400, one 67 Grande with a 396 and TH400 and two small block 67 Grandes with TH400's.  Funny how you find stuff when you're not really looking.

I have noticed the same thing Ken(s). The 68 cars had plenty of them. I bought a number of 68 model B body insurance wrecks way back when because I wanted the TH400's
