Six speed?

I was wondering if a there is a six speed trans that will bolt behind my 355. This way i can have a good low first gear but can stand to drive it on the interstate if need be. If i cant find one of these then i was thinking five speed out of a 80's chevy half ton. It will go in to a 86 chvey blazer. And 4.11 gears. What yall think? And thanks fer the input

T56, 6 speed transmissions from LT1 motors fits directly to your 355.
If it has 2 piece rear main seal you must buy a special flywheel. 1 piece rear main seal flywheel is ok.
But the LT1 6 speeds are getting harder to get now maybe(?)

T 56 from LS based motors bolts on with a special adapter, after what I've heard.
