I'm busy ordering and collecting bits for my '29 Model A roadster, and have been looking for a modern transmission. The engine (from our '52 DeSoto wagon project) has it's original Fluid Drive and "GyroMatic" 4 speed, (which is available if anyone has a boat and needs an anchor). I'll use a HotHeads adaptor for whatever I choose, I don't want to row a 4 speed, I'm 65 and I've had plenty of cars with manual transmissions. I'm leaning towards a 700R4, for the deep low gear and overdrive, but was happy with the 350TH I had behind the 283 in my last roadster, a '34. Anyone have any input on what transmission would make this little engine happy? I've got a Ford 9" with mid 3's gears, should be a fairly light car.
