AutoGear There was a guy around Syracuse years ago that had a Toronado drivetrain stuffed into the back of his late 40s/ early 50s Desoto. It was pretty well done from what I remember and would just shred tires. However I have no pictures, nor any idea what happened to it or the owner.

If you plan on abusing it, Dana 60, Ford 9", or Chevy 12 bolt, or an 8.5" 10 bolt might suffice.

Cadillac had the BOP bellhousing bolt pattern, so that Buick TH400 will bolt up, as would any TH350/400 that has the BOP bolt pattern.
