1965, c-10, 230, 411, 3 speed. What would be the best automatic swap for this truck?

I love that word 'best' because it always implies subjective judgments.

Best at what? What are you trying to accomplish?

The 2-speed Powerglide was an option, so factory parts could be used to make the swap if you can find them.

A TH350 will fit where a Powerglide did, so that is a reasonable swap.

And then you could consider one of the overdrive automatics.

But some idea what you want to accomplish would help narrow the choices.

Its true, I really don't do anything but browse the Internet looking for trouble... . . .
