I've had several 57s, I used a T10, (broke it), then put a 4 speed out of a 67 Mustang in it, beefier trans. Had to change driveshaft.

nice, what trans did you take from the mustang? are T-10s weak? cause the three speed i had in the '57 was pretty weak. im just trying to figure out what 4 speed trans will match my bell houseing and spline number.

It came from a 67 390 Mustang fastback. The T10 would probably be ok though, I broke it drag racing it behind a 406 in my 57, (the T10 came with the 406 in my 62 Ford Galaxie).
