I have a Borg Warner 3 speed OD behind my 235 with a 3.90 positrac six lug 
truck rear.  It gives the best of both worlds, good torque when taking off 
and high speed on the highway.  You should also consider upgrading the brakes 
and rebuild the suspension to match the new speed potential.  Going fast and 
not being able to stop in time is not a good thing.  Remember, these trucks 
are 50 years old and everything is well worn.
