I have a 50 shoebox tudor sedan that I picked up for free. Kind of a basket case with rust in the usual places, no interior and no drive train but definitely a worth building and the price was right. I rounded up a SBF 302 and C-4 to start mocking up the drive train. I also found a Maverick and Comet that I can get the rear ends out of for free. From what I can find those rear ends only came from the factory with two gear ratios, 2.79:1 or 3:1. The two rear ends that I found both happen to have 2.79:1 gears. My question for those who own shoeboxes and are running a similar drive train with a maverick rear. Does this gear ratio work well for you? I imagine it would do fairly well on the highway, not so sure about off the line. I am not building a high horse race car but don't want it to be a complete dog off the line either. Also what size tires are you guys running because obviously that will have an effect on the final drive ratio. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
