If you sink your teeth into an automatic transmission rebuild, you can expect to see several hundred parts but all of them need to come together in just the correct way to be able to transfer the power from your engine to the rear end of your car and eventually to the ground in the most efficient way possible.
Normally, for your average DIY mechanic, something like this could take a couple of weekends if not longer but this time, thanks for the folks over at Hagerty, we’re able to drop in on an automatic transmission rebuild that takes place in just five minutes.

Check out the video down below that showcases the entire strip down and rebuild from start to finish on this transmission that will have an old-school Ford Thunderbird ticking out there on the roadways for a good while longer. There’s nothing like making sure that a classic like this can keep its roadworthiness for as long as possible.
