That 4.11 gear would have that 250 straight 6 humming pretty good! I only mention this because in case you need parts, the parts counter guy isn't confused.

BTW, the Chevy V6's (90 degree-type) are the '78-'79 3.3L 200 cid (3/4 of a 267), the '80-'84 3.8L 229 cid (3/4 of a 305) and the '85-up 4.3L 262 cid (3/4 of a 350). As I type this, I thought there were years that overlapped, but I guess not- at least not by the Wiki info I'm looking at...
