I recently purchased a '66 MGB I want to use for a daily driver.  It came
with two '66 vintage transmissions and a complete later model transmission
(all non-overdrive).  I have heard that the later model transmissions are
much stronger and will fit the car with some minor modifications to the
body/drive line.  Normally I'm a purist and strive to keep LBCs as original
as possible.  However, this car already has a lot of bondo, rust, and
requires too much work to restore to original.  Anyone out there have any
experience or suggestions on making the transition?
