    I noted you said CAN be from a Car, so that leads me to believe that he wants it for a Truck.

    Just keep in mind that NO Trucks used a Long Tail Transmission, as do 1958 to 1966 Stude. Cars.
    So some kind of very creative Driveline Mods need to be done which of course HAVE BEEN done by others, depending on if a Long Bed (122 W/B) or Short Bed (112 W/B) Truck (Easier) is involved.

    With the proper Engine mount BRACKETS from a Truck, a 1956 or '57 Car Engine and short tail Flight-O-Matic Trans. would be a much easier swap into a 6 or 8 Cyl. Truck.

        Same problem, a '58 to '64 Long Tail Trans. would be an issue with the driveshaft.

          My 53 has the same set up in it. We can modify the driveshaft to work.

            Condition? Core? Running? Rebuilt?

              He would like it to run, but he has the skills to rebuild.
