It was tested on a Chevy "mule" many years back..... but had already
been introduced at SEMA. (unusual marketing to say the least)
I think it was a '57 shoebox.
Anyhow, I think the guy (or guys) who were at McLeod that were behind
the thing up and left the company, leaving McLeod to stumble through
real world testing, etc. That's why it took so long.
I don't know anyone running the McLeod transmission.
