32 Ford Coupe, Transmission suggestion

I'm having a '32 Ford Coupe built with about 560 hp up front.
The tranny is going to be 700r4,,will that be good for the hp?
Your suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks

So much depends on the build you are planning. Are you talking about 560hp @ 7000 rpm from a built SBC, or 560hp @ 5000 rpm from a high-torque big block? How much money are you planning to pour into the 700R4 to beef it up for this duty? Have you considered one of the newer GM automatics instead?

The engine is a stroked chevy 383 and it does have a 6-71 blower.

If the car is light enough, hopefully the tires just spin without breaking the tranny.

For overdrive transmissions, a 4l80e is stronger but requires a stand alone computer to run it.

I was reading about the 4r75e tranny,,it's suppose to be good up to 600 hp?

I've never seen a Ford tranny bolted up to a SBC.

Well like I said,,I'm having a shop build me a '32 coupe with the above engine and they always use SBC engines with Ford trannies I guess because the frame is a Ford frame?
I want to make sure I put in the right tranny for the hp and tq the engine will produce.
I had a 2006 Corvette{just sold} with over 560 rwhp so I know I'll need a good tranny on tis coupe!

Ok no offence, we all were new to the hot rod scene at one time so I'll base your statement about your shop using Ford transmissions with a sbc on your lack of knowledge. "Almost" NO BODY uses a Ford trans behind any kind of Chevy engine....period. There's just no reason to, 1st, they won't bolt up w/o an adapter, 2nd, the Chevy 700R4, 4L60, 4L80 built properly will be a perfect trans for what you're doing. The 4L60 & 80 are stronger, in regards to the Ford chassis, any trans will fit.

Just a word of caution, your hot rod shop might be the most honest guy's in the world...I hope they are but you really need to educate yourself on this build you're undertaking.....and/or find a friendly knowledgeable street rodder who can go with you, look at the car and the prices this shop is charging you for parts. Believe me when I tell you that a LOT of guy's get screwed big time when they don't know anything about hot rods and have someone else build it for them. Hopefully yours isn't the case...but it surely wouldn't hurt to look into it. Good luck

As a long time real 32 Ford owner ...



I have NEVER heard of using a Ford based automatic behind a small block Chevrolet engine.

You can go here to see a journal of the build on my 32 3W coupe.

http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/jour...ge=5&reverse=1

I would imagine ... that the frame for you NEW toy is a reproduction one ... never to have ever been close to a Ford plant. Same for the body. NOTHING wrong with that at all. A LOT of the " 32's " being built are reproductions. Both fiberglass and steel repro bodies are now available.

Post up some photos of the new built ... we are such a visual bunch

The 4L60 and 700R4 are the same unit. 4L60e also has the same guts.
The 4L80e is the stronger of the two.
I'm sure you meant this, just wanted to clarify for the OP.

Here is a 700R4 built to withstand 700 Horsepower.

http://www.transmissioncenter.net/pe...ive.htm#Stage4

No adapters needed. I have a built 700R4 in my 1932 Ford 3W coupe. My engine is " only " 430 horsepower but I do have a NOS shot plate on it with a 225 rating. 430 plus 225 equals 655

My 700R4 did require a bunch of upgrades and a special nitrous rated converter. With street tires ... the car HOOKS pretty hard without the NOS. With it ... tire smoke city.

No disrespect,,but if you look at the op,it does say that They will be using a 700r4 tranny.
I do believe that is a GM tranny,right?
I just wanted advice on using maybe a "stronger" one for the amount of hp that my engine will be making,,or will the 700r4 be ok.
Thanks
