1956 Chrysler Newyorker, looking at trans options
OK here is what I have . 56 chrysler newyorker ' 5000lbs +/-' with a gm 383 with around 400ish hp . I have a 8.8 w/dics and limited slip out of a ford exploder . I sold my th350 with all the goodies to keep me from getting lazy and not converting a 4-5spd . I have a sm465 top loader and a nv4500 4x4 trans . I am a tight *** right now with 13month old twins sooo im going to use one of the two . Of course I would wrather use the nv4500 but is it worth converting it to a 2x4 ? I also have plenty of time behind the 425 and the sm465s and i understand there not a quick shifter but I should be able to stretch it on out right ? Pops just got a 74 cuda and im tired of him talking junk and im ready for some seafood . The newyorker was pretty ruthless with a stock 3spd auto so i cant do anything but improve right ? Btw I dont leave the lights unless im sideways , for the money i put into her , im going to have my way with her .
