Let Modern Driveline Put Overdrive in Your Classic Mustang
On the other hand, if you believe your Mustang was born to run on the open roads, then the addition of Overdrive will convert your classic Ford from a freeway buzz bomb into a quiet, smooth vehicle that can accomplish a 500-mile day with ease. If you’ve never experienced a classic Mustang with a Fifth gear, you should definitely try out a friend’s conversion because it will seem almost miraculous as the transmission slips into Fifth and the tachometer drops from 3,000 rpm to 2,000.We probably sound like a broken record to some because we’re always singing the praises of Overdrive here at Mustang & Fords. It’s indeed one of the most worthwhile conversions of all. If your classic Mustang is an around-town grocery-getter that makes it to an occasional cruise night on the weekends, then a final drive ratio of 1:1 likely doesn’t bother you.
