I am beginning a frame-off restoration on a 1947 Dodge WC pickup truck. This was a farm truck and is geared very low. I would like to upgrade the transmission to make it more drivable (current top speed seems to be about 55 mph and working hard to do that). To complicate matters, the truck had an engine swap, long ago, apparently has a 1946-48 Plymouth deluxe engine. Is there some available 4 speed I could mate to the existing flathead? The existing transmission is a 3 speed manual transmission. Any suggestions?
