If your car has a 261 engine in it and it is stock that is a Canadian built automobile and probably has Hydramatic transmission similar to the one in the '58 Olds built in the US. I'm and old timer and when GM had a fire destroy their Hydramatic Plant they moved all of the automatic transmission assembly into a Buick Dynaflow plant. Then we started seeing some different combinations. I worked in a dealership shop in those days. I even saw several Cadillac's with the Dynaflow in them. I'll bet the owners never knew the difference. My suggestion is to get the car up in the air and look for any identifier tags. AND take photos of the transmission. Then get back to us here. I'll bet we can help you and maybe save you from having a bad experience.
