This trans isn't stamped. It's the correct trans so likely the trans was replaced sometime in the past. Thanks for the help.

The bell housing is not integral to the transmission. If the number on the bell housing matches the numbers on the frame and/or elsewhere everything should be cool. Engines were commonly replaced in those times and occasionally maybe the transmission, but bell housings were perceive as something not likely to be replaced.

The number is stamped across the top edge of the bell housing/flywheel housing directly behind the fuel pump/ intake manifold when bolted up. This is difficult to read under an alligator type hood. It was really made for the older two side opening hoods to be easily read by a cop or other official. Similar to today's location on the cowl.
