Looking at some T5 transmissions on Kijiji up in Ontario Canada and wondering what you guys in the States value them at? The two I'm checking out are 1352-246's which are Ford v8 and have 335 fist gear and .68 overdrive . Second best trans to the 295......63 trans.They are both located 150 to 200 miles from me and both are said to be in good shape (of course). one is priced at 300 canadian trans only and the other is 450 cd with trans bell and shifter. Since they are too far away to go see what are they worth to say someone in the States in the same situation?If they were 40 to 50 miles away and could be checked out as ok or worth the risk the first would be worth 200 to me and the other 300.Any opinions on that?

I picked up a '90 (Mustang V8 ) WC T5 (1352-169) last month for $200 in Waterloo. The claim was that second gear selection/synchro was an issue, but have not investigated that claim yet.
In the past, I've also bought a couple of other V8 T5's from wrecking yards in London for a lot more (typically $700-$800). Regardless of initial price, it is incumbent on the buyer to have a complete inspection of the internals before installation in a vehicle and have peace of mind that you're starting with a good transmission.
Paying $300 or $450 w/bellhsg sounds like a reasonable used xsmn purchase price but you could be adding some expense to recondition it .

T5 prices on Craigslist in the US are all over the map. They can range from $150 for a four cylinder model to asking over $800 for the desirable V8 models. I've paid in the $150-250 range.

It sounds like the prices are the same weather its Canadian or American money. That's what I was interested in.I bought a couple of four cylinder T5s for 50 or 60 bucks just to check them out maybe for parts but what can you use them for? Nice to hear from you Graham. I'm just up the road from you. I think I saw your car at the London sports Car show this year but didn;t see you and Joe thanks for the info Tim
