1932 Ford Roadster – Powerglide to TH350 swap

The Powerglide transmission in the 32 Roadster started acting up.

Rebuilding was one option.

We had a TH350 sitting around, so rather than mess around with the old boat anchor, we opted for the swap.

The swap required a special adapter plate to accommodate for the starter and modifications were made to the shift mechanism.

After all was put together and torqued up.

It was time to take her out for a spin.  What a difference.  Power and fuel consumption improved dramatically.  Hopefully drop a more appropriate 3 speed manual sometime next year.  Stay Tuned for that!
