Yes. Bolted a 5 speed Doug Nash in my 71 Vette with zero changes except for a modified transmission mount and replacing gear shifter with a Hurst unit. A bit tricky to install if you have a 4 speed non-removable cross member,,,,but can be fone

Been in since the early 80's, has performed flawlessly. 5th gear is not an overdrive.

Low gear is very low at about a 3:23, therefore giving me a 5:13 out of the hole with rear gear of a 3:36. The hot ticket if you wish a better highway gear, install a 3:08 or 2:92, and still have excellent low speed performance. Transmission is a very close ratio.

I believe Doug Nash is now owned by Richmond Gear.
