Help with a transmission class project

I call on our resident gear head to help me out with some info for a class project. I'm looking for info and links to info on what transmission bolted up the flat head fords in the 30's or 255 ci flat head in the 49-53 merc's.

Any help on pointing me in the right direction is grateful.

Thanks Huggy

I'll get back with you later but most of those cars had manual transmissions. However cars had what was used in my '51 Dodge called a fluid drive. It still had a clutch but only needed to start the car and get into first gear. The remaining gears were shifted into on the fly.

I know most of them either had a 3 speed transmission or a 4 speed. Im looking for more info on them and some links to websites with information. I have to make a 10 min or longer with different kinds of info. Like gear ratios, How long would it take to overhaul it and what not.

Thank you a ton ta2maki. My Google fu sucks and If I go with something from the 70's. I lose point on creativity.

My ideas for this project was the Ford 9" rear end or something off of my dream cars (33 coupe or 49 merc).
