Can I use this to mate a W58 5-speed transmission to my 7M-GE engine?

people with Toyotas, drive other cars too- not only Toyotas- some also own Dodges that's why
I'm just wondering why a link was posted in a Toyota newsgroup on Usenet.

Don't buy it Hachiroku, it has a few problems. It looks like there aren't any spark plugs in it and from all the dead grass on the intake, iit's been sitting in the weeds for a while.
Also, Chrysler didn't make a hemi in 1953 or 1955. They did make a wedge-head in the late '50s, around 56 or 57. The hemi-head didn't come out until around 58 or 59. And both the wedge-head and the early hemi-head were around 380 to 413 cubic inch.

And to think you might find one in a boneyard for $150 or so, but then there might be spark plugs, no grass, and no cracks.

Ahhhhh, I stand corrected. I put my bid in just now.
Some guys have a real set of balls, I'd hang my head in shame if I tried to sell that thing.
