Have a customer that wants an OD trans behind his mild 428 in a '67 7-Litre 'vert. Street cruising only.
Thanks, Rick

Automatic or manual??

I have a Tremec TR3550 behind a mild 390 in a 66 Galaxie, and it is an absolute game changer compared to a 4 speed manual. 3.35 first gear X 3.50:1 rear gear = 11.725 overall ratio for impressive takeoff. Overdrive 5th equals sub 2000 rpm at highway speeds.

I have a Gear Vendors overdrive behind a 68 428CJ & C6 transmission in my 59 T bird. Their kit replaces the tailshaft housing with one that allows their overdrive unit to bolt to it.It's about $3thousand by the time you're finished but it's also going to cost to adapt an OD trans to you car.

something like a Gear Vendors OD unit that bolts to rear end.
Got in a hurry and left out the info, sorry. Hoping to find someone with real time knowledge about the OD choices.
Thanks, Rick

What would make more sense...

February 13 2018, 7:29 PM 

...to install a late model 4 speed auto tranny like an AOD or AOD-E.Gotta be far cheaper than an add-on GearVendors unit. $950 for the kit, say $1,000 for the tranny, mods to the mount and driveshaft, say $500 and your pal is good to go.
