I am helping a friend restore a 65 fast back. It came with a 4 speed transmission that the Previous owner was going to use to convert it. Can anyone tell me more about the transmission? The #s on it are C5AR7006-DW-2 there is also a plate riveted to it with "RUGM and 013159 on it. He is thinking of keeping it original but he wants to know more about this transmission. If he does sell it what is it worth?

390 transmissions have about 5/8" shorter input shafts, a SB input shaft would be needed or a special pilot bushing.

Shifter mounting was slightly different, IIRC...

Toploaders consist of the box and the tail housing. There are different tail housings for different model cars. It is common for people to switch the tail housing in order to put the trans into a different car. You should also get the casting numbers off the tail housing and look at David Kee's identification chart at http://www.4speedtoploader.com You can also check the box tag number there.
