Mine has a aftermarket Trans. The engine case is original and matches the COA but
much of the engine insides are changed.
Unmolested cars will always be worth more on average than modified cars. Repaints and color change repaints do more harm to a cars value than an engine change and of course body work lowers the value more than most any thing.
The pitfall with worrying about the cars value to much is after awhile you do not feel you own the car any more because you are so busy protecting it for some future owner and what they might potentially see as valuable.
I fell into this trap with an old Corvette, I let other people tell me what was "wrong" with my car and how to make it "right" Right to who?? was not right for me, and why am I letting other people tell me how to enjoy my car?
