    ‘67 S tranny - did your car come with this one?

    I’m clearing (cleaning) out a bunch of no longer needed items of a large lot buy a number of years ago. In that purchase I picked up a bunch of old transmissions, most of which are now listed here.

    One of them happens to be a 901/02 5sp trans with a build date of the 39th week of ‘66.
    The serial# is 103729

    According to my research, this is an ‘67S gearbox.

    It’d be ‘oh so cool’ to find the owner of the car this originally came with. I know it’s a LONG shot but I’ve seen stranger things happen. I thought I’d post it here first for a few weeks in the hopes we find the car if it still exists. If not, I’ll eventually post for sale.

    Please don’t ask me “how much” as for right now I’m hoping the original home comes forward. You’ll know the answer to that question when (if) it gets listed for sale.

    Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I would guess the VIN to be in the 306700 to 306800 range. I have a few near that serial scattered over quite a VIN range.

    IF it came from a targa according to my database it would have to be in the first couple of targas made almost all of the ones I have data from, down to 500021 have a 104xxx gearbox
    on the Coupes I think it would be a early/ mid November, possibly up to early December, 1966 car. I have 103727 in vin 306735S with a completion date of 11 November according to its Kardex but as Dave said numbers close to that one seem to range over a wide vin range

    Wow John, you have a great memory! Yes, it was in “that” haul. Most of the cars are gone. I kept the 69E Targa (almost done and now back to the original Golden Green) and the 68 912 softie (which turned out to be #’s matching)

    Thank you too Dave, Eric and Hugh for chiming in with your vast numbers knowledge. Hopefully the field is now ‘somewhat’ narrowed, but we’re still looking for that “needle”.

    Thanks Hugh,

    I have a 67S targa basket case that needs a trans, but I don't think it's that early. I have to get into my files to get the number to see what range I do need. The engine in that car is non-number matching, but it IS a 67S engine.

    As mentioned, this transmission would have been installed during November production. Except for perhaps the first 15 Targa's the main production run began in January 1967; so at least a month later. Caveat: this is going by Invoice dates from Kardex and COA.
