1958 Buick transmission swap and rims

Recommended Posts

He there, I'm looking for some info for my 1958 Buick special model 48 stock 364 engine.

I want to change the transmission on it for a th350/th400 or 700r4 who has done this and what will fit without cutting into frame and transmission tunnel and witch rear axle will fitt/ has the same track/tread as the original.

I was told the 700R4 is much bigger in size but it's a heavy car with a lot of torx.

Who sells new rims that are the same as the stock rims so i can still use my original hubcaps.
