Automatic Upgrade

I will be replacing my old 289 in my 66 coupe with a new 347, putting out 450 a- 500 hp and am looking for an economical transmission upgrade to handle the horsepower. I don't ever intend to race it. But I am not scared to put my foot into it. It will mainly be a daily driver, and will see the highway, from time to time.
Right now I am running the original 2 speed cruise-o-matic and that is not going to stand up.
I'm interested in what others have done, and recommend.

Will the old T-5 style transmission from the 87-93 5.0 match up ? Those transmissions are super economical and should handle that amount of power easily.
