Re: ford racing transmissions? 2 or 3 speed?

The most popular ones for drag racing here in OZ are the C4 and C6 3 speed autos.

Ford did make a 2 speed auto in the early sixties. But, I haven't heard of anyone using it for drag racing.

The majority of drag racers tend to use the 2 speed powerglide tranny. Of course, it is a GM tranny though.

I run a C6 behind a 460 in a Modified Dragster. A mate of mine runs a similar combo in a super sedan Ford XB Falcon Hardtop. A couple of mates run powerglides behind a 355 clevo and a 357 windsor respectively.
