    Yes the T5 bolted directly to the 216, New driveshaft and rear end. Still do not have shocks but rides ok. Tires rub the control arms a bit but I am going to set them in a bit with longer bolts and washers.

    Nice lookin' truck. The wheels seem to match up well, though the fronts are original 6-bolt, and the rears are 5. What wheels are they?

    Ya got me thinkin' about a T5 and later rear-end behind the 261 for my '53 AD.

    The rear is a GM 10 bolt, while the fronts are still stock. I have not changed them out yet. Will either find car drums, or wait until adding 5 bolt disc brakes.

    Turn 300 miles today taking a seat to Greyhound, bound for CA (fellow Hamber). My god, this is cool driving. Already had 2 people ask if it was for sale! That will give you a big head!
