You might google transmission adapters...I know there is a company that makes one and they are at the Hot Rod Trade Show every year, I'll have to locate their catalog..but I believe their name is Berndtsen's...something along that line. If you google and a name similar comes up, that's it...I'll locate the catalog and post again if you don't find them. I think they offered adapter for several trannies to fit the extended early Hemi...actually used those on display.

Bendtsen's Transmission Adapters does not currently list any adapter kits for early hemis (or any Mopars) on their website. However, they might custom build one if you request it.

I am currently building a car with a 331 hemi and a T-56 6-speed. I got the adapter kit from Wilcap Company. So far, I'm satisfied with their product.

That's pretty weird, they have had 2 different early Hemis at both the last 2 Trade shows with a Turbo Hydro on one and I think a 5 speed on the other . I even think they're listed on their product sheet, it's possible that the website isn't current. That's not uncommon,I know I guess I'll have to locate their info. Nothing against Wilcap, it's a pretty old name, but Bendtsens offered more current tranny options than I recall Wilcap had.

EDIT: Their product sheet list an early Hemi long bellhousing to Chevy adapter, that was probably the same adapter used for the TH and the 5spd. I didn't look closely, because all their adapters are for Chevy trannies.... I have a 392 I was looking for an adapter for but wanted something other than a GM tranny. I haven't checked the link supplied and it may go to the same site, I'll check after I post..but the one on their product sheet is www.transmissionadapters.com

Same site...they have discontinued the Hemi adapters, although, you may find that they still have the ones that were used at the Trade shows...especially since they discontinued that model.....I will raise that issue if they show the same ones again. I guess I'll keep the Torqueflite.
On the other hand, as a Ford guy, I noticed they offer a much larger selection for Fords as well as in general..including O/D autos.
