crappy mgp

Hey guys
New here, got a question for ya

I have a 65 chevy p/u with a 327. We had to put a new tranny in it b/c the one that we bought it w/ blew up (rear seal came out leaking out all the fluid while they dragged it to the show where we bought it). We put in a TH 350, and because of the cam in the engine we had to put a 2200rpm stall converter because it wouldnt idle. The thing runs like crap on the highway and gets HORRIBLE gas mileage. It gets 10 on the highway and less in the city. Im 16 and cant afford that! So my question is should i get a new tranny? A 5 speed would be awesome...

PS it has 3.72 in the rearend.
