Just bought this car from a tow yard and building it to race (pics will be on circle track section when complete). The only issue with the car is that there is no reverse. As i said its a stick, and will run through gears 1-5 no problem. Its not that the reverse wont engage, its that the shifter wont even go into reverse even with a little force. All other gears are smooth. I dont think there has been any recent tranny work on this car. My first guess would be maybe the linkage is out of alignment somehow? but wouldnt that effect more than reverse only?

Reverse doesn't have a syncro. Have you tried putting it in reverse with the engine off? Since there is no syncro, it can be hard to get it to go in. With the engine running, start pulling the shifter into reverse with the clutch in. If it won't go in, start to let out on the clutch a little to try to sync up the gear while continuing to pull the shifter into reverse.
