Can anyone tell me what the casting code "1 1" means on this 4 speed trans up for auction on ebay? Thanks.

Case was cast in January 1951. In the fifties they used numbers for the month instead of letters like in the 40's.

Ralph,
Thanks. I thought that was probably it. I haven't been involved with anything newer than late 40's for over 30 years and back then I only cared if it fit in whatever frame I was using for the build.

For several years in the mid '50's the only code used was a 3-3.
