From the SAI parts catalog, dated 4-1966. Strange how that ad clearly states that the transmission case and tailshaft are of aluminum but you can clearly tell that the tailshaft is something other than aluminum.....

Thanks for sharing that scan.

It looks just like how the T10 in 6S933 was restored:



Brant is that the common factory look? Black tail section?
Cheers

The best I can figure the last carryover rolled out of San Jose around the middle of August. So I don't think this trans would be a good date for those cars. But if you decide to sell it I wouldn't scratch those owners off your list of potential buyers. Not everyone is so picky about date codes.

That's not black. It's the dark cast iron finish.

It looks like a painted faux cast iron finish .

Here's a pic of the K45 2 T10M referenced above and the unrestored case cover looks just about as black as Brant's.

I've seen at least one picture of an aluminum T10 that looked like the case cover was also aluminum. The ones shown here appear to have cast iron side covers. Am I correct that some had aluminum covers and some had cast iron? Is there a range of cars that can be assigned to each of those types?

Thanks,
Steve
