Overdrive options

I have been tossing the idea of overdrive around in my head for a few days. What are the best options? I know of gear vendors, but they do not make a kit specifically for a Powerflite, and they are expensive (cheaper than rebuilding the Flathead agian!!). I have the stock 3.73 gear in the rear, I don't really want to mess with the rear gear, it accelerates rather lethargically as it (down on power, up on weight). Was there a factory overdrive option for the powerflite? Does anyone know of a place or person that may have one? Remeber my car is a six cyl. car, so changing tranny's isn't much of an option. Any suggestions?
