depends on whether you have a 6 or an 8 and if it's a 302, 390, 428, 289, etc. Standard rear for a 289 is often a 2:79 like some folks have. I think that the resident "gear" man can answer this question when he comes aboard. Welcome.

My '68, built in December, 1967 had 2.79 gears with the 289 and auto. I say "had" because I opted up to 3.25 when I had it rebuilt.
