ford trans ?
Those old ford transmissions aren't very strong. They were designed to handle 85 horses. There were thousands of swaps done using them in the old days, you could buy an aluminum adaptor bellhousing, a new pilot bearing, a hurst front mount motormount crossmember , just not push it too hard, today the most popular thing is to match the engine up with an automatic, then convert the rear end to an open drive line type. and there are kits that use 2 parallel rear springs , and kits to add modern disc brakes to the front.
