    Would it be ok to store a 700r4 upright ?

        At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

          I knew some one would ask its a transmission out of a GM vehicle.

            The transmission doesn't care what position it is in, it really doesn't matter.
            The oil on the other hand will seek out the lowest point. If I had to store it upright, bellhousing side down, I'd first remove the torque converter and wrap it in a plastic bag along with the transmission.
            Be prepared to place a drain pan under to input shaft as fluid will slowly drain out for a while.
