Yep you will never reach more than 20 mph anyway unless your doing some crazy figure 8 style dirby but i think everybody stopped that back in the 70s.

Might want to use seperate trans cooler and not run the trans thru the rad since its a target. Dont forget to weld a backup linkage to the trans and run a lever up thru the floor. Also make sure she will start in gear.

Aumuseal is great for a sealing leaky radiators. I would toss some in there just in case it might help.
