Red face TH350,th400 or a glide?

I recentley picked up a 67 cevy 2 without a tranny.
It had a th350 in it but I'm sceptical about putting another one back into it because I eventually want to a build a 400-500 hp motor and put a 150-200hp squeeze to it and I don't beleive the 350 or 400 can handle it.
I want to drive this car on the street, but not on long trips.
I can get a pretty fresh glide (rebuilt a year ago) for around 200.00, is this a good price and are glides streetable?
Oh yeah, will I need to get the drive shaft cut?
Thanks for your responses.

A TH700R4 is about four inches longer than a Powerglide. I don't know about a 350.

Powerglides are quite streetable. I drive one in my '65 Caprice. But you don't get to wind your engine out the way you can with more gears.

I know that 'glides can be built for racing, but I don't know how it's done.

sleppy67nova- A Glide and th350 with a short tail shaft are of the same length or 1/2" differance. The trans crossmember will bolt right up to either. Your drive shaft will slip right in.You might pay more for a built 350, but you will be happier with it,3 gears instead of 2. Keeps you in your power, tourqe curve better. Glides are good for real light cars, race cars.And a 67' nova without a tubbed rear end, or springs moved in will only hold a 235/60-15 tire. So this puts less strain on rear end, trans,etc. less breckage.Best of luck to you!
