DAN WILLIAMS TOPLOADER TRANSMISSIONS was started in 1968 because I believed that the Ford TOPLOADER was the finest transmission ever built. I still believe this today. How many times have you heard good things about the Ford 9" rear end and the legendary Ford TOPLOADER transmission? They are so superior that both are still being used today, in a modernized version, by virtually every NASCAR team, regardless of car make.

I have built 5000+ TOPLOADERS since starting DWT. I always enjoy seeing old customers at the shows and talking with them on the phone. DWT became a great business by word of mouth from satisfied customers. If someone had a problem, they called me day or night and the problem was solved by the end of the call. The thing I enjoyed most in life was the TOPLOADER business - building TOPLOADERS, chasing after cores, going to the car shows, swap meets, conventions, and also owning and driving all of the hot cars equipped with TOPLOADERS. Yes sir, ol' Dan burned up the asphalt in Dade County, Florida!

If you are in the market for a remanufactured toploader transmission, need to have your transmission rebuilt, or would like to sell or trade in a toploader transmission, please contact DWT. We use only high quality DWT rebuild kits and parts and provide only first class professional workmanship. Whatever Ford project you are working on, Cobra kit care, road racing, daily driver, etc. We can custom build the right toploader transmission for your project. I am still manufacturing Toploader parts and rebuild kits, and the distribution of Hurst shifters and Lakewood bellhousings. I will stay in the Toploader business until they drag me off to the old foks home!
