My '68 vert does not have the original motor & I have always suspected that the tranny is not original either, so, this past weekend I crawled underneath to get the VIN off of it.
It is: 19K565620
I'm thinking that the 'K' is for the Kansas City assembly plant and this trans came from a '69 Chevelle.
Would that be correct??

Thanks

Jerry -

You're correct on the assembly plant being Kansas City, MO.  The transmission is out of a Chevelle or an El Camino.    Smiley

Here is the stamping code: S9D26

S = Saginaw 3-speed
9 = 1969
D = April
26 = day of month

So, your Saginaw 3-speed manual transmission was assembled on April 26, 1969.
