Ok guys and gals, I am deciding on the drivetrain on my 55 Olds and a few questions came up. We are going to pull the 324 and give it a once over and get it running, the trans is shot and if I am going to drive this car on a regular basis I want a modern and relaible trans in it. What I need to know if there is a trans that everyone recomends that will go good with the 324, am I going to need an adapter and if so who makes them. Also where can I get some good parts at a good price for the engine rebuild? I am used to rebuilding sbc and the prices on parts for this engine are priced way high compared to the sbc, I want the Olds in this car so I just need to find all the parts to get her going.
