You can also get a late model 5 speed and bell housing from a 5.0 car. I'd look for the world class one. If you're planning on drag racing it won't hold up long, so you would need a Tremec they bolt up to the early style bellhousing (they have the same pattern as the top loader). One last option is the 3+1 that came out in the late '70's and was used to the mid '80's. It's based on the old top loader with an aluminum case and an intregal shifter. They aren't as strong as a top loader but make a nice street trans, I've swapped several, they came behind the smallblocks and the 300-6, all use the same bellhousing so it would bolt right up tothe Cleveland. the 1 refers to overdrive 4th gear.
