Actually I knew the tranny would not fit a 1956 235cid engine, but I have learned to never say "never" in the cyber world.
I built a hopped up 1955 235 cid chevy 6 about 8 years ago.
installed the chev 6 in a 1950 chev truck, Camaro saginaw 4 speed, 3.73 rear gears. It ran like that ape that is getting raped!
I still miss that truck
I gotta sign this too?
At the Bonneville Salt Flats, first gear is known as 130 mph.
