Post Gear Drive??

I just got me a '54 Chevy pickup ... it's in great shape and was put together nicely - 350 w/gear drive, Edelbroke manifold, Q-jet carb, electric choke and pull-off, headers, 350 turbo trans, 12 bolt Chevy rear, gas tank moved under the bed ... I love this truck!

But -- I haven't got a clue what a gear drive is all about!
Can someone explain why I might not want to swap it out? Personally, I like to listen to my engine while I'm driving, and tho' my mechanic says this is the quietest gear drive he's ever heard, the "whining" isn't to my liking.

I've never heard of a gear drive before. What's the diff?
