I have a 400 turbo in my 72 chevy pickup. The 350 tranny has a passing gear and the 400 turbo doesn't. Both trannys are good. If you need replacement parts for your truck, I found out the Truck Stop Chevrolet Products in orange,Ca has good prices and have a lot of parts.Here's their phone # 1-800-243-8947 I think they give out free catologs if you call.
nick,

I need to make a point , A 400 turbohydramatic does have a passing gear , its activated by a solenoid in the bottom of the trans near the valve bady . A single wire hooks to a switch on the carb or the accelerator pedal . I dont know where he figures a 400 doesn't have a passing gear but they have since they were first introduced in 64 . I have rebuilt many and they are bullit proof . My passing gear detent switch is on the carb on my 69 396 cst . Try a 400 but make sure you put the detent on it and adjust it properly . A 350 has a cable activated detent for passing gear . I can stand on the 396 at 40 mph and it will downshift and smoke the tires .

I would say the TH350, it's a great all around Tranny. I have one in my 72 Cheyenne.

What kind of motor do you plan on running? Do you want a auto, or standard? Me personally I like to drive a standard, more fun to me. TH350
is a good auto, and can handle high HP. In my pic behind the S-10 is my '67 stepside chevy, bad picture of it mind you. Mine has a mild 350 and a muncie 4 speed, lots of fun to drive.
