1981 F250 300 ci i6 transmission choices

Asked by Sep 06, 2016 at 02:59 PM about the 1981 Ford F-250 STD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 1981 F250 with a 300 cu inline 6. My manual transmission is a 4 speed where 1st is grandma. Is there another manual transmission with overdrive? Right now I'm risking throwing a piston over 70 mph.
