Tricky Dick initiated the double nickel speed limit.

One can buy one hell of a lotta gasoline for what it will cost to swap the tranny, and the paltry 2-3 MPG gain will only be on the highway.

And btw: 1950/56 Packard Ultramatic's had a lock up torque converter. The 1955/56 version was such a turd that Packard 'nuts' refer to it as ULCERmatic!
