You should have a partial VIN number stamped on the transmission that matches the engine VIN.

Here is a pretty good site that may help. It is aimed at the Chevelle, but will still give you all the info you need: https://www.chevellestuff.net/qd/muncie.htm

major clue there

69 azz end .......69 case ... 68 side cover or shifter forks n hardware from the original tranny

the partial vin will /should be .. within a couple inches of the date stamp
smaller than the date stamp .. and closer to the mid plate ////

or

on top facing the floor of the car ... right against the bell housing...

I have seen some early ones vin stamped on the machined surface the side cover bolts to
ON THE case .... there a little pad that hangs out next to the gasket...where the date is on this one..

so with the 69 tail shaft and lever that makes it a little tough t o get the back up
lite switch to work.....68 only style,,,,

If original, and not a 4-speed conversion, the trans had a back-up switch fitted to it. You should still have the wiring somewhere in sight? There are different styles.

I believe Ames may have it. Hurst sells a bracket/switch that will work. Ebay seems to have a few types, and there are universal set-up that can be fitted. You want to make sure you have all the matching components for each style of switch. The Hurst looks to be the simplest to install/use.

He has the bellcrank for the switch on his reverse selector arm in the pic....the rod and the switch are gone, though.

Don't believe there is a neutral safety switch - that's for automatics. I think the neutral safety switch is when the trans is in neutral or you push in your clutch pedal in case you left it in gear. That's what I'm thinking, but I could be wrong. :yesnod:

68 didnt have a nuetral safety switch ... the 2 purple wires at the base of the column were jumped from the factory with a U shaped jumper plugged into the plug.
You could add a 69 up switch and harness real easily tho ...

good find on your 68 shifter ...
