1949 Mercury Rear End

Thanks Joe! Good information. I really want to retain this rear, and just change the third member. This is a nice old chrome rear end from the good old days. This is an old 32 roadster that was built in the 50's. It's important that I keep her as close to how she was, if that makes sense. However with it's current gearing, I'm limited to about 55 MPH. And she's screaming at 55 MPH.
I really need to find some 49 Ford or Mercury freeway gears (3:30 to 1 to 3:54 to 1 would be ideal). Thank you very much for the information!
