Re: wiw? 68 SS396, 4 speed, no motor/trans/title
update.....the trans was in the trunk!!! along with the bell housing, clutch, pressure plate, etc.
how do i figure out if the trans is original?[/QUOTE]
Beginning with the 1968 Model Year, a VIN stamp can be found on the Muncie case. If the trans in the trunk is original to the car, that number will match the VIN on your dash. You will also find a date code, which should predate the cars build date somewhat. The number of rings visible on the input shaft will identify which Muncie 4-speed you have. (Unless of course, it's been rebuilt with a different input shaft). Sometimes the "ifs" seem to run on endlessly.
Bell housing will have 3899621 cast into it, if original to the 68SS, et al.
I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how high he bounces when he hits bottom.
