If there is an OD off button, I'm guess its 3+OD. That's the exact setup my dad's truck has, its a 4 speed. Sometime accelerate to 60, and count the changes. Remember not too hard, or you'll think the torque converter locking is a shift too...

Well, powerglides are only 2 speed transmissions. Lots of high horse power drag cars use them.

Correct! It was a 1972 Vega running a small block 327 backed by a reverse shift 2 speed "Slip-N-Slide" (Powerglide) tranny. Now that I think about it, I never had that engine completely wound out. The thing would just keep pulling. I ran out of highway before I ran out of engine.

Aww. That Vega came standard with a 4-cylinder, the same size as in my truck. I was out running a friend in his 94 2500 GMC Sirra the other day in the S10. I had the advantage of the standard and his being an automatic. He was keeping up but he couldn't pass.
