cannot help you there. I just saw the box a 55 -57 I believe the 605 one.

I blew up the picture you posted and it looks like 3713 487 and the lower number 611 3 does that look like what you see, you have the box or just a picture?

steering gear casting no's

different internals can go into the same castings. I remember in the factory when they sent in Mercury parts to the Truck plant. everything bolted up. at the end of the assembly line the driver almost drove thru the seat cushion shop. the truck went left when he turned the steering wheel to the right .. opps. dodge trucks and chrysler cars shared the same castings with different internal parts. the same problem when the wrong part was bolted in.

It's a GM 600 box. Newer version of the 605. You will find it on the Colorado and models based on the same chassis.

You sure about that? put on your glasses and look at the picture again, they both are black with that silver thing sticking out. However that is as close as it gets..

They do not even mount on the same side of the frame another little problem. "sure ain't no modified toyota pickup box "

Here is a pic of a Isuzu box going on a Mercury. Cut of the mounting eyes and weld on a new mounting flange and it look 100% like the conversion box.
