Re: 392 hemi to a Powerflite

I know that they can bolt up, because my father had a late '56 Windsor 2-door that had a FACTORY 354 Hemi in it (seems last few got this "option" as Chrysler was short of 331 polys) HOWEVER, I also remember that my Dad had to have his transmission rebuilt TWICE in the 10 years we owned the car. I think this was due to the fact it had an AIR-COOLED Torque Converter, and the engine produced more power than the poor P-Flite could handle. If you do this swap, be sure to add transmission oil cooler lines and a cooler!!!!!
