1955 F100 transmission question for 292 install

In my 1955 F100 (project), I am putting a 292 from a 1963 F100. Both truck are 3 speed on the column. I want to keep my 3 speed on the column. The Trans from the 63 is longer than the trans from my 55. I would rather not be cutting down the original drive shaft if possible. My question is: "Since it will bolt up, is there any problem with installing the 55 trans on the back of the 63 (292 y-block) and using my original drive shaft? Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes use your 55 trans, the 63 trans will not have the provision for the clutch linkage where it bolts to the side of the trans.
So yes use the 53 trans

A quick follow up question, if you don't mind. My 1955 trans was mated with a 10" clutch. The 292 has the flywheel drilled for an 11 inch clutch & pressure plate, which I have. Is there any problem with mating the 55 trans with the 11" set up? Thanks again.
