There are some advantages to going with a '65 model 727. You get rid of the ball and trunion universal joint for the more traditional splined output. You will have to replace the valve body with a '62 to '64 model, since the '65 has a park position, and you will have to go with a later rear end if you want parking brakes (gets rid of the tapered axles too). While you are rebuilding the tranny, if you plan on going with a higher stall torque converter, you should replace the front pump input shaft and support with a later ('67 to '81 non lock-up) 24 spline unit. Nearly all of the aftermarket converters fit this.
