The “429” housing was widely used up to 1965 but after that mainly for non-Chevrolet applications. Think Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Buick. It has a driver’s side speedometer output.

Most Chevrolets used the “584” tailhousing 1965-1970 which has a passenger side speedometer output.

Check the rest of the numbers on it. Like the main case casting number and any stamped letters/numbers for more information. Post it if you want and I can try to help.

No drain plug. 2 rings on the input shaft. M20.

Assembly date starts with P9 so it is for the 1969 model year. I did not see a partial VIN but my guess most likely from a GTO based on the shifter mount.
