    I know it’s best to identify a transmission by it’s oil pan but this one is still filled with fluid and I don’t wanna tip it on its side in my shed. It was in the darkest depths of my shed that I’m cleaning out and I don’t recollect when I got it or what it is. Thanks in advance, John 912E5796-E78F-419E-95BB-D802C5AF1787.jpeg 9ED64739-FA0E-436E-9CE4-FF26B75A3457.jpeg

    Looks like a 400. What does the tag say on the side?

    No tag unfortunately. I looked for that. It does look like it has the original big modulator on the side of it though. Thanks for looking sir!

    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    This is the tag Adam is referring to. Carefully clean off the grease. Don't get rough with it just in case it's a valuable transmission, having the paint on the tag in good condition is a plus to a restorer.


    A partial VIN could also be stamped here if it's '68 and later:

    This is what you hope to find :) '70 Stage 1

    Gary, you are the man! If it is a 400 and I think it is it came from a 69 GS I stripped apart a whole bunch of years ago. Still a good transmission to have around for a rebuild. I have the torque converter too. I also have the crossmember. I made it to the back of my shed today and found things I had forgotten about. I will clean that part of the transmission up, and see what I can report back. Thank you!
    I also have the air cleaner that’s in really nice shape, and for sale. (oh crap, I have to mention a price. 300 bucks delivered to Bowling Green) I’m sorry, I’m messing up the ops thread. LMAO!
