I picked up a T56 6 speed out of a LT-1 Camaro I believe. I got it nice and cheap from a guy that had it setting around for almost 9 years and didn't really know what it was or what it was worth. I am going to mate it to my 289 that's going in my 36 Ford truck. It's going to put me even further behind in regard to getting it on the road. It's alot of work to make it fit but, I really like the idea of the 6 speed and the final gear of 1:00 to .50 and a 4:11 rear end with 31 inch tires. I will be able cruise at 80 MPH at around 2,500 RPM's. I am going to have to cut the X center out of the frame and fabricate new rails and mounts and still maintain the split bones hook up under transmission. It will be be alot of fun trying to get everything into an already shortened frame. Then I will have a big three drive train. Ford Engine, Chevy Trans, and 8 3/4 Mopar posi rearend which wasn't really a goal kinda the way it's turning out. Pretty excited about it. I need to get the bell housing before I start the alterations.
