I want overdrive for my car, because revving to 3k every time Iget onthe freeway is just no fun. Right now I have an m-21 and would like to keep something similar to it in ratios. I want something that's easy to install, non-hydraulic preferably, and manual. Are there any good 5 speeds with overdrive? Oh, and I have a 67 with crate 350.

you can resize your drive shaft and add a overdrive unit behind the trany electronically controlled by a toggle switch this will let you keep your trany for drag racing i dont know who makes it or what its called though it would be pretty easy but not that cheap

Look in the archives. This topic has been discussed extensively. The two options are the Tremec OD 5-speed and the Richmond non-OD 5-speed.

Proper use of the Richmond will require you to replace your rear gears to something like 3.08s because 5th gear is 1:1. The Tremec bolts in and can be used with your existing gears.

I wouldn't really consider a Gear Vendors overdrive unit to be an option for a manual tranny. The G-V overdrive unit costs as much as either of the trannies mentioned above.
