I am looking for a core 86-95 T5 tranny to rebuild and install in my '70 Mustang. I will totally gut the tranny and replace with new. All I need is the case. Which car models and years did Ford install the T5's? I will hit the salvage yards unless someone knows a person who can help. Thanks for your help.

Will a T5 from a GM work???? I heard that the only difference is the input shaft spline count. Is this true?

The T-5 wasn't a V8 Mustang option until '83. Even then, some of the '83 models still had the SROD 4-speed. If you're going to change EVERYTHING, then a 4 cylinder T-5 should work for your purposes, and they're a little easier/cheaper to come by. In stock form, they have a wider gear spread, and slightly different input shaft, but the case and tailshaft are the same. I'm not sure on the exact year they became available, but my '83 T-bird Turbo Coupe came with one new.

The GM transmission has a unique tailshaft, and is installed at a bit of an angle compared to the Ford. I believe the case is slightly different as well.

The gm case has a very wide pattren and can not be used with a ford bell housing... I had one for a while and to make it work was more expencive than to buy a core some where else. I would advise to try to find a ford unit..

This could help. I think the 94 and newer has a longer input shaft.

The 94-95s have a longer input shaft to use that tranny you willhave to go to an earlier model input shaft
