Wanted my partial vin stamped C-6 transmission 543072 PGB W

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

The day I sat in the retirement home and talked to the good doctor about your car, he stated the original trans was sitting in the corner of the garage up against the house. A subsequent visit to the house found the trans he was referring to in the location referenced in the conversation. That transmission was NOT found to be the one with your VIN number. The trail of your original trans is cold.
