    If it is a true '55 Prez. transmission it wll be a DG 250M with first gear start. When these were common, they were often used in place of other transmissions. The 1953 Commander Starliner that I had the longest, had a 1962 259 V8 with a DG 250M that I installed in it. It was/is a very nice driver.

    No, yes, maybe...sort of.....
    Bell housing, and torque converter,starter(unless it is rare early 56 12 volt) you wll have 6 volt ring gear on DG trans. mounts are different, and of course, after 57 (58 and up) you will have long tail shaft on the trans. Flight-o-matic is a stronger transmission. Bands hold less force than clutch packs.
