Post rear end mayhem

I have a 62 ford fairlane that i put a 302 and tranny in from a 1980 T-bird....i am using the stock rear end that came with my fairlane i dont know what it is really...if they're 3:50 or 3:55 or what but in any case they are the ones that came stock wityh the car. I'm getting like no take off power difference from the 170 engine to the 302 i put in....could it be the gear ratio?....some say yes but others say my car should be screaming...whats that deal? Also the tranny shifts thru the gears real fast...so fast you cant even feel it and after about 35-45 mph (approx) it feels as though I need one more gear to shift into....so with that said is this gear ratio problem or something else? plaese help im short on funds and i need to get this problem fixed.

Well sir, here's my two cents.

The drivetrain that you described, if it is stock, is no powerhouse, and you are not going to be able to feel much difference at all between the two drivetrains. My advice, be happy with what you've got, because it ain't gonna' be cheap to feel it in the seat of your pants, that is ofcourse if you don't mind putting about 1000 bucks in the motor to make her open up.
