Looking for help and ideas on what is the best way to solve my problem. Purchase 63 chevy pickup with a 350 and 4 on floor. Believe pickup was originally a 6 cyl, as it is almost to low geared to get on highway. What have others done when swapping engines to eliminate this problem?? Thank you all
Try a stock saginaw synchronized 3 speed and a higher ratio rearend. I have some of these. Dean@tnchev
You have several options. Change the rear gears, install an overdrive transmission, or and auxilliary overdrive(like a Gear Vendor or US Gear Dual Range).The simplest would probably be finding a rear end out of a 67-70, that came with an automatic. That year range should mount properly in your chassis. 71-72 will have 5-bolt axles.
