The old transmissions and rear ends had some whine to them, but if it's excessive, the oil may be low or worn out. Might change it out with a heavier weight and get by for a while.

My 53 chevy had a pretty loud whine. I changed my oil out too and made no difference and it only had 85000 original miles. I enjoyed the whine after i realized there was nothing wrong.

The ole Buick tranny had a distinct first gear whine. I loved hearing them.
