I'm obv just stirring, but so many on these things seem to think the options run out once the part can't be sourced or fixed from within the local towns around them.

Canada is quite local if you have to ship a transmission around the world.

HMMM...good point sir

60% original paint.....scratched but not damaged? That doesn't agree and possibly doesn't even qualify as a any of that survivor crap. If you can enjoy it as a nice original car, do just that. If it needs tidying up so it's presentable enough to be able to take to the shops without ridicule, do that also. If you don't want it, sell it. Let someone else lose money on something that they choose.
Absolutely, paint the poor thing. No one should be rewarded for not maintaining a vehicle unless it's in a museum. And yet we give them accolades and trophies for owning a piece of crap that has been parked in the sun for 30 years on rotted tyres and has the original plug leads that were due for tossing decades earlier. Yes, paint it, look after it. Originality is great where the condition allows its use without holding the rest of the vehicle back. It's your car, if you don't have an opinion on it, I'm not sure you'll find one on here to agree on.

lol...I know of a great place to bring in my hometown but Northern Ontario Canada is a bit of a drive for you, just to get your tranny fixed. Let us know how you make out.

Heat is about the only way you'll get it off...Want to heat the calliper (disc brakes) / wheel cylinder (drum brakes) more then the bleed screw...this will expand the metal around the bleed screw and should be good to get the screw to move with the vice grips. Worst case scenario, you'll have to heat the brake line (unless they are new), remove it and then remove the calliper / wheel cylinder and do it on the bench. Sometimes it's easier and way less frustrating to just replace it all with new parts (when you can afford it) and start from there. All the brake components work then. I live in the north and everything rusts up and gets seized. Done this job lots of times on various vehicles.

you don't need a big cutting torch and a propane torch may work...heat combined with shocking the metal with a cold wet rag will also help too. Sometimes I have done several combinations of things.
