1964 borg warner

Brother has a borg warner with WL1153 on side. Could this be a GTO trans?
Cast iron case.

I believe WL1153 is a Borg Warner production date code for November 11, 1965 3rd shift,

I see some casting date code on case of k -16-4 . This would be for 1965 model year trans then. I am thinking Dec. build or Jan build 65 car? It is a close ratio to.

Borg Warner transmisions were not used in any GTO. No GTO had an iron cased trans. The iron case BW was used mainly in earlier big Pontiacs (pre'65) and other GM lines. The correct 4 sped trans for a GTO is an aluminum case Muncie.
