Default Identify this 4 speed transmission

Quick looking at it and some searching I thought saginaw.

I'm not 100% sure. I need to rebuild it and I want to get as much info about it as i can before I start. I don't have it in my possession yet as I will be doing this for a friend and I haven't had time to get over there. He took it out and took these shots of it. It was behind a small block chevy.

Any other info you might have would be appreciated also. As well as where to find parts.

if it was in the original car, I'm going to guess its an M-20. 7 bolt side cover, need to see a better shot of the tail housing to be sure.

looks like saginaw to me? i googled the bell housing casting number. it was oe for a 78 to 81 a/g body with a sagianw. they could have used it for other stuff too though.
if its a swap it could be nearly anything.
i thought muncie trannys had the shifter bolted to the top of the trans, but i could be wrong.
i thought super t10's had the shifter mounted on the tail housing, but i still could be wrong.

I agree.....If it was a 67-69 Muncie there would be a part number that starts with "P".

Looks like a Saginaw 4 speed, the Saginaw have the 7 bolt side cover same (slightly diffrent shape) as a muncie, but the muncie has reverse is on the tail housing..

The saginaw should be a cast housing and the muncie is aluminum

That ugly ass plate on the side was for the "third arm on the GM Monzas and Vegas back in the old days. Camero didn't start using that till 82.
another thing if it was a very early case it would have the reverse lever in the tail housing and the speedo would go out the right side.
