54-56 322ci Nailhead / Dynaflow

Recommended Posts

I have been just searching craigslist on work breaks to pass the time, but seeing Jef1956's ad really got me thinking. I am interested in finding a good running 54-56 322ci w/ Dynaflow to swap into my '54 Special. It doesn't need to be super fancy, but I am wanting something to swap in and enjoy.

I don't have a huge budget, but let me know what you have and what you want to get for it. Will pay cash or I have a 2006 6.0L LQ4 w/ 4L80E that I was going to use in another project that I would be willing to trade for the right combo.

cool picture David

find you a 56 engine and tranny set if possible. Is your 54 a dynaflow? Don't forget you will need the transmission/accelerator linkage from the donor car to install in yours if you go with a 55 or 56.

Thanks MrEarl, I enjoy taking pictures, it has been my window into the hobby for a couple of years.

My '54 has the 264/Dynaflow in it right now. It needs a refresh, but I want to keep the car driveable. That is why I am looking around. Thanks for the heads up, I was not aware of the linkage difference, that will definitely be something to watch out for. Will a '56 Nailhead bolt up with my '54 Dynaflow? Thanks for the link, I might be able to work something out with that.

Thanks

David

Yea but a 322 may be too much for that 40 series Dynaflow. The 40 series stators only have 12 vanes where the others series have like 20 or 22. The 60-50/70 series 322's put out much more torque than the 40 264's. Why don't you try it though and report back, as I have a 322 I want to put behind a 40 series transmission too.:D Just never heard the results of it being done.

seriously I'd keep looking for a 322 with Dynaflow attached

Thanks guys. I have a couple of leads near by. One would really put my Dynaflow to the test, but I am thinking I might be able to get through the season .................. if I don't hammer the throttle.

Apparently I can't post a picture from my phone, but while being more than I was looking to spend right now, it is exactly what I would be working towards building with anything else. Let's just say solid lifter cam, tri-power, and comes with 200-4R adapter ;) . Just trying to scrounge up enough funds before somebody else buys it.

Where are u located? I have a dynaflow transmission. Im not positive on the year but I think it an earlier one. Maybe the number on it could help.

Hey first born guy, I talked to you back in in Sep 2014 about my 56 buick century. I took your advice and got the nailhead running, and im having the dynaflow rebuilt, plus wiring.

Thanks for all the responses guys! Sorry for not posting up sooner, but I bought a '56 322 w/ 2bbl and Dynaflow. Will need to be gone through, but hopefully I can get it in my Buick this winter.

 

Thanks
