Gear Ratio?

Hi. Ive got a 1984 Pontiac Bonneville. It will have a Chevy 350/Th350. right now the car has something around a 2.73 gear in it. i want change the gearing to something that'll really make the car feel torquey, but i dont want to run to many RPMS at 55MPH Either. Do you have any suggestions on what gear ratio i should run, and how many RPMS will it turn at 55MPH.
