Second run: blown-up 727s

by David Zatz on

How do you blow up an A-727 TorqueFlite automatic? Tom Hand, whose definitive book on the famed muscle-car and truck transmission is now being sold, chose to do it photographically.

After the first limited run of these posters sold out in a matter of days, Tom went out for reprints, now available for $23 each including shipping, within the continental United Statescorrection: the second run sold out within days.

The TorqueFlite has been used in everything from humble Valiants to European exotics; it was generally known as being reliable, durable, smooth, and efficient. Tom Hand’s book should help people keep theirs running smoothly, and at peak performance.
