T85/R11 Overdrive Unit Applications

I have a 1959 Edsel Ranger with a 292 ci Y Block. I have the stock manual 3 speed T85 transmission. I am looking to add an overdrive to this transmission, and I have read that there is an R11 overdrive that will bolt up. Is this possible and where can I source it?

Thanks

I can only speak about the early Borg Warner overdrives. The transmission housing was made for bolting up the overdrive unit and is not the same as a standard trans housing. The output shaft is also specific to the overdrive trans as it needs to protrude into the overdrive unit to turn it. If you check one of the interchange manuals you will find the specific info on the internal and housing differences for your car. Terry
