Will a 1955 dodge standard (with OD)transmission with bell housing out of a v8 car bolt right up to a 1959 325 truck hemi?

What is a good price on that OD tranny? I know that R-10 out of 6cyl cars are desirable to the earlier car guys but the input shaft is longer for the v8 cars. I have looked through the threads an haven't found much on the FL vehicles and overdrive transmissions. I have had the hemi for 20 years and am just getting around to finding the trans. I have an opportunity to buy the Whole set-up with the electronics and bell housing...just want to make sure it is a fairly easy project.

Thanks Rob

Are you sure it's a 325 cubic inch? I believe in 1959 Dodge trucks could be had with one of two possible Hemi engine displacements; 315 or 354. The 315 was a Dodge Hemi while the 354 was basically a Chrysler Hemi. If the three speed was behind a 1955 Dodge Hemi and you have either a 325 Dodge car Hemi or 315 Truck Hemi I believe you are good to go. Not sure about the 354 Truck Hemi though, would probably bold up but might require difference spacing?

Either way if both are pre '62 they'll bolt up.

Should have said if both are pre '62 V8 not inc. big blocks.

Just as a reminder....all of the EarlyHemi, Poly, and A series, up through 1961, share the same bell housing bolt pattern as well as crank flange. The exception is the 51-53 Chrysler 331Hemi. There is no difference in truck-marine-industrial engines.
