Hi,

anyone recognise what this might be. Acquired along with some other old vehicle stuff but don't want to scrap it if it might be of use to someone or of value. There is no top panel and it look like some sort of two speed box. Gears turn freely enough, just rusty on the exposed side.

Terry
Looks very Dodgie to me with the long input shaft and the handbrake brackets.


Would be a 3 or 4 speed constant mesh (second shaft under the top one spins all the time and the top gears pick up various gears on that to give you your ratios.

Looks like it is a 3 speed for a light Dodge truck.

Terry, the brand on the side of the box, Looks like a gear with a letter inside of it, I think that is the "New Process" logo. But as always ISTBC. Cheers Tim ;)

If you go by Swishy's advert it is, but another one I found in much better looking condition and a lot more history known is only asking US$185. :(

I did find this description of the unit. www.ebay.com/itm/48-68-Chrysler-Dodge-Co.../171779323661?_ul=BO

Manual New Process Selective Sliding Gear Column Shift 3-Speed Transmission Assembly for a 1948-1968 Dodge Light-Duty Pickup Truck, 1948-1968 Dodge Commercial Station Wagon, 1948-1968 Dodge Panel Delivery, 1948-1968 Chrysler Cars, 1948-1968 Dodge Cars and 1948-1968 Plymouth Cars All Production Models Equipped with the New Process Manual Selective Sliding Gear Column Shift 3-Speed Transmission. This transmission can be identified by an overall case length of 8-1/2" and a casting number of #C-39701.

Pretty sure New Process is a Chrysler subsidiary. All their 4x4 products (plus many other car makers) have New Process transfer cases and probably the same with gearboxes.

WAS a Chrysler subsidiary, been out of business for quite some time now. New Process morphed into New Venture Gear, when Chrysler got into bed with G.M.(only for the gear division), were making transfer cases and transmissions up until just recently.
Think that bloke was being a tad optimistic with his prices for a 3 speed transmission, most blokes (except for the rivet counters) turfed them out and went to the later 4 speed NP435 which had synchro on 2nd,3rd,and 4th, plus the deep granny gear on first.
