Super Lemans! Mine is a 1966 As well and I have a 461 Stroker motor. Listen to geeteeohh guy on that trans. I did what he recommended to me a few years ago, I took out the super turbine 300...And put in a 350 TH with a shift kit and a dual gate shifter. Really great,bolts right in no drive shaft change needed.
The 350 is a strong trans, but I also added a “Ratchet Diode” put in by Performance Torque Converter PTC,... they build the race converters and transmissions too. They said they put it in drag cars and it would take a thousand foot pounds of torque, and they have not broken one yet.
Butler said my engine would have about 500 to 550 ft lbs of torque, so the 350 can easily take it and may have been ok anyway.
I then put in a gearvendors overdrive, had to put in a new driveshaft and crossmember, but that is awesome as well.
Your car is super, enjoy it, and congratulations!
