I did not know that. A friend with a 1977 TA has 3:73 gears and hates them. He is determined to put an overdrive trans in. He keeps saying the TKO, but I know that requires a lot of added hardware. I'll have to investigate the TKX. Thanks for that info Joe!

TKX is also a service replacement for the TKO, it's certainly an evolution of it.

Wowsers, what a transmission. Looks like there is a GM and Ford specific version. The bell housing bolt pattern looks correct for us. Ultra smooth and stronger too.

These are the available ratios for GM. https://www.tremec.com/menu.php?m=184

Just an update on the sheet metal situation. There was just a thread on the Buick GS Facebook page about the lack of any aftermarket quarters for the 64-65 Skylarks. Apparently the Wolf Steel panels fit like absolute garbage. I'm not surprised being they are hand formed, but for what they cost, I know I'm definitely not going that route.

I still have one more lead to chase down before I subcontract these to Rktpwrd. We'll see what happens.
