I don't know Will. But it's worth considering that the A727 Torqueflite was used by Aston on the V8 Vantage. Jensen also used it on the Interceptor, including the SP (383 Six Pack) and the J series 440 engined cars. And Chrysler used it pretty much everything including the 426 Hemi engined cars.

It is still used to this day by many much higher performance builds of these engines in drag cars and monster trucks, so I really don't think you need to worry about the tranny.

Later versions of the Torqueflite got a lock up torque converter, but that was just to give better fuel economy at highway speeds.

The Salisbury rear axle was also used by Aston and Jensen and was made by Dana.

I don't know for sure, but I suspect the same transmission and diff were used in the experimental Aston Martin Bulldog which produced well over 600Bhp!

Can't help you with the prop shaft
