Nice? That car was the recipient of a bare shell restoration over the last 
6 years. It is nearly faultless in every respect. Owner lives right there 
in Brunswick and is/was with the USCG.

Nice to know it's out and about.

trans plug

I have narrowed my gear oil leak down to the drain plug. It's totally 
tight, but seems to be leaking.
What would stop the leak and not damage the trans if it got into it?

If it's leaking past the threads, you might try wrapping them with  
teflon plumber's tape the next time you change trans oil.

Wrap the plug with Teflon tape.

Re: trans plug

teflon tape is not a great idea!  oh , it will work. 
but if it is not done just right , some strands can
getinto the gear box and that could cause som oiling
restrictions in the rear of the box.
i'd rather reccomend liquid teflon thread sealer. 
used sparingly and what ever comes out is easily wiped
off as opposed to having threads or strands of teflon
tape hanging off the plug that have walked out during
insertion.   if you insist on using tape , remember to
wrap it the right way pulling into the threads while
wrapping it or will literally walk off the plug as you
are threading it into the hole.
