This sounds like great news. I don't know whether to be excited or skeptical. Per Jamie, I'm #200 on his list for what seems like about 7 years. Have even received the calls asking if I still want one (YES!!!). I suppose it's good news that the version I need is being made, the E-body for my '71 bucket seat RR. I'm going to make a call this coming week to see what's what.

Well, I spoke with Jamie this week. He confirmed my position on the list and gave me the fantastic news that I would be included in this next batch. He stated they will be assembling the trans' in 1-2 months. I need the B/E box and the tail shafts are what they were waiting on. The price is still $5475 plus shipping at this point. I didn't ask for the shipped price yet. The timing works for me!!!

Fastbird, this is good news. I am a few numbers after you and also need a B/E box. I hope I am in this next run.

For those of you who have one in a car and using it, have you tried it at the drag strip? I'm wondering how it'll perform in my 530 HP A- body when using a McLeod Soft Lok clutch.

I'd love to have one, but I just can't do the years of time it will take to get one. If I had a rare, unmolested car that I wasn't willing to cut up, I, like a lot of you would just wait. I, however have a 6 cyl three speed stick '65 Belvedere post that I have no problem cutting on. I'll be getting a T56 Magnum 6 speed which is capable of 700 ft. lbs + and is available TODAY for $2500 less then this trans. I wish Jamie and all of the people who have been on the list for years the best of luck and hope all of the back orders get filled soon. I can't imagine the stress of trying to get these out and for sale for all of these years.

It would be nice if someone could post a YouTube video of their A-855 trans going thru the gears?

I'f I can figure out how I could try to upload a video. In my opinion shifting an 855 is indistinguishable from an 833

I agree completely. I put 800 miles on mine when it was in my E body.....

Secret stash probably for his friends.



Boone boxing up a couple of transmissions to ship. Slowly but surely they finally starting to trickle out the door.

If you have been waiting for a trans I'd recommend contacting John.

If you have money he will be thrilled to sell you one.

No friend status needed.

My transaction with John was flawless and the trans lives up to the hype. WELL worth the wait.

Think about this for a moment. How difficult is it to buy a new HEMI block?

In comparison, how difficult do you think a clean sheet design bolt in transmission would be to bring to market?

I support people who support the hobby

I've been in Contact w/JohnH for months.

Seems like there's always a trans around the corner or something, but still nada for me.

I can only speak for my experience. When I found out he was a part of the 855 project through this thread I contacted him.

There was a trans available and I had it inside 2 weeks from the first time we spoke. Maybe I was lucky.

Also, I was 136 on the list that doesn't seem to matter

As someone who bought a Keisler TKO kit in the early 2000's I can positively say the 855 is superior. It's not even close. I truly hope that everyone who wants an 855 can get one.

Same experience here, John was very easy to do business with and I hope to get my unit installed later this year. I searched for any videos of the A-855 in the car and running and found none? Hopefully someone can show us what it’s like to cruise on the highway with a performance rear end while maintaining 75-80 mph with traffic........ I will certainly post a vid when I get my Barton 528/A-855/3.54D60 drivetrain combo up and running...... TBF
