Ford Mid-Size Cars 1971-1985 Repair Guide



Several manual transmissions were available over the years. In order to properly identify a particular application, obtain the transmission code from the Vehicle Certification Label and refer to the following list:

2-Five speed overdrive
4-Four speed (TREMEC)
5-Four speed overdrive (1979 only)
5-Five speed overdrive RAP model (1980-83)
5-Five speed overdrive (Borg Warner model T5OD) (1984-85)
6-Four speed (Borg Warner model RAD) (1979-82)
7-Four speed ET model (1979-85)
7-Four speed overdrive RUG model (1980-83)

For example, if your transmission code on your Vehicle Certification Label is 2, then the vehicle was originally equipped with a five speed overdrive transmission.
