429 cj overdrive transmission possible???

Hey guys, I have a 1968 fastback and have a 429 CJ to put in it and I am wanting to get info on my transmission options. I have a c6 but would really like overdrive(if possible)-I have been told that there were some big block vans and trucks that had transmissions that would work. Any input at all would be appreciated-especially if someone here has tackled this before-

Thanks

There are several options depending on your budget and desires.

You can build a AOD on steriods that should handle what a "normal" 429CJ puts out. Try some searches as there are a couple very good posts on how to do this from Danny Cabrel.

You can bolt on a GearVendors to your C-6 and pull a motorhome with your 429CJ.

You can go to T56 or TKO600 if you want a "man pedal" option.

You could go E4OD (or equivelent) but you would need to make a TON of room in the tunnel for it.

lentech makes an adaptor for an AOD to the BBF he may also have an option where he cuts off the original aod bell housing and install a BBF bellhousing. $$$$ either way

I have an E4OD in my Mustang that I love . It is a little larger and is about six inches longer but will fit if you have the desire. Drops my highway cruise from almost 3500 rpm with the C6 and a 3500 stall to about 2500 rpm.

Thanks

Thanks for the responses guys, I just went to the machine shop and got the ball rolling on the machine work so now I can decide which way to go on the transmission. I am (like most people) on a budget but I want it done right and am not the most tech savvy so I see I have some research to do. Any more suggestions or direction even would be cool-Thanks again
