Those old cars were heavy, after you are done you might want to change front and rears springs or rates to get stance and ride quality. Back in the day I used a packard overdrive Transmission. in the third roadster I built. all my buddies were breaking the Ford flathead transmissions behind their Caddy, olds or chrysler powered rods. A buddy told me to Find a packard, strong , and heavy, has a synchro on first gear, .. That roadster is still in a corner of the shop , mabe one of my grandkids will do a resto on it.
