C-5 is like a C-4, but with a lockup converter, I believe. My '86 Mustang LX with a 3.8 had a C-5, looked just like the C-4 in my truck.

And it has only 3 clutches in the clutch packs as opposed to 4. Better known as the Pinto trans.

Thanks for the help.I've never heard of the C-5 before.So the C4 is a stronger trans then the C5.

I'd go with the C-4. They made those longer, which means more are available. C-5 was used from late '70's to late '80's or so.
Plus C-4 has a larger selection of converters and other performance goodies. C-5 wasn't really meant to be a 'performance' tranny...

Just an aside ... I've been rooting around under my non-running '68 GT (some people would call it a parts car, but it's too good!), and I've confirmed it's a Toploader connected to some kind of Ford in-line 6 engine, and the bell housing has a serial number that starts C5AA. The engine was definitely a V8 originally. Does that mean anything? Have I got a manual tranny with a C5 auto bell housing? Should I go back and get the whole number?
Thanks!

Simon, the C-5 is a type of automatic trans that Ford used in the mid 70's-80's. It's a version of the C-4 automatic. I'm sure the bellhousing you have w/ the C5AA would refer to a '65 year manual transmission.
