later flathead trans

You could try to find a later overdrive and open drive line transmission, the 48 is a closed torque tube , trucks use open drivelines by mixing merc, ford bell housing clutch parts and you could run any of the 50's od transmissions. might have to do some crosmember clearance work but keep the 9 in rear. mabe 370-389 gears.
