The Cougar 4 speed manual transmission, is indicated by either a ?5? or ?6? on the door data plate, under transmission. Code ?5? a wide ratio transmission, and ?6? a close ratio transmission were used across all years 1967 ? 1973. This ?Top Loader? is a Ford built transmission and is revered as the ?strongest most reliable transmission ever built?. The Top Loader name comes from the plate on top where the gear assembly is ?top loaded?. The 3 speed 3.03 is also a ?top loader?.

At West Coast Classic Cougars the transmissions that we sell are ?Used?, meaning that they are ?takeoffs? from the many 1967 ? 1973 Cougars that we have purchased and scrapped for the purpose of organ donations to breath life into those Classic Cougars that deserve a second chance at life. Our takeoff or takeout transmissions are generally from long parked Cougars that have sat neglected for several years or more. A transmission is described as an undamaged case, tailshaft, with all internals. It will not include the following ? shifter, shifter mounting plate, shift rods, backup switch or wiring, bellhousing, clutch or pressure plate, mount or crossmember, or yoke. It will be a used bare transmission like you might find at a swapmeet.
