Suggest gearing for my '29 pickup!

I am building a closed '29 Ford pickup, no fenders, will probably weigh 1800 lbs. I'm running a SBC 383 stroker with mild cam, beefed up 700R4, Transgo
kit, Corvette servo. Differential is a narrowed 8" Ford. Is a 4:11 too steep! Any ideas or thoughts would help!

With a 29" tire, 700R4 @ 70 mph......4.11 = 2333 rpm , 3.89 = 2208 rpm, 3.50 = 1987 my opinion not too high at all. You surely don't want to lug the 383 and of course it all depends on your parts combo which equates to where the sweet spot is.
