    400 engine, standard perf, non lockup trans. Should be the same as what you would use with a 440, if non lockup is your goal. HTH, Lefty71

    I've seen destroyed trans before - but'''
    Try and find a HP trans or pickup if you are going to rebuild
    else grab one from a C body or imperial- usually not hot rodded
    year makes little difference
    if you find a lock up all the better

    Looks like it’s a non lockup. I can get it for $200. No TC.
    I’m building a stockish 440 for shows and power tour. No racing. For my application, does it matter if it’s lock up or not?

    That number lists as from a '78 station wagon, 400 cid with a 4bbl carb. For $200 I'd get it! (If it's not bleeding parts out of the case lol)

    for your application not really
    lockup has a little better gas mileage, several hundred less rpm at cruze and runs cooler, you can also run a looser converter and still have it lock up- the factory lock up converters were looser to give more torque multiplication for the absolutely no bottom end of the late smog 400s and 440s- without the lock up the factory would have had to lower the gear ratio- and then they had to do that too!

    Thanks guys. Got it for $200. Hope it’s good! Fluid is red, shifts thru the gears, and tail piece rubber boot is still rubbery
