From an early age I learned to weld and built mini bikes to custom cars. My dad has always built hot rods as far as I can remember. He currently has a 1955 1st series Chevy Truck with the original 235 motor. He is considering putting a late model tranny behind the 235, like a power glide with an open drive line or a 350 or 400 turbo. I have researched this and if have got a lot of conflicting advise. I am trying to find the real information before making a mistake in fabricating the project. that is why I am on this site to gain knowledge and hopefully pass on what I know, Which I will add later.
