rj57 A stock '55 with powerglide would have got a 3:36, possibly a 3:55 rear end.

There was some change between '56 and '57 so it is possible the '55/56 got a 3:55 rear.

I know for a fact my '57 with original 283, powerglide has a 3:36 rear in it.

matt167 yep, poncho's got it. b4 1955, there was 2 gear ratio's 4.10's for 3spd manuals and 3.55's for the PG's, but in '55 when the V8 came out, many ratio's were available.

poncho62 Quite possible......many ratios were available. Lots of powerglides also used 3.36 rears too.

I found the answer in some of my old chev books, and the rear end is 3.55.1 with the powerglide.
