I would say it's a Ford Toploader based upon the location of the tag. You need to provide the letters and numbers off of it to identify which toploader it is.


Ford Transmissions


And it was not painted blue when it left the factory.

Well, it certainly appears to be a Ford Design 4-speed. You see that little tag in the third photo? Stick your phone up there and record that info. It will tell you everything you want to know.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

Main Case Identification

It seems to be a Wide. 8 hole case toploader from a 72-73 car based on what these sites say.

That is a casting number off of the main housing. You need the numbers that are stamped into the metal tag that is riveted to the housing. Probably RUG-BJ or RUG-BJ1 according to this chart.
