Can you ID this tranny?

We found this transmission around our shop and we are curious as to exactly what it is and what it might be worth on eBay. We believe it is a 3-speed Chevy/GM tranny. Some of the identifying numbers include:

GM19 3952645
C28 OV
B280
GM19
3925647
SOD 24
3880042

Any help we could get on this would be greatly appreciates. Additional photos are available if you need them.

Thanks in advance!

From looking at the photo, I would say it is a dead 3 speed. Must be dead because it is laying on it's back.

Looks to be a Chevy 3-speed...either a Saginaw or a Muncie.

I could use some info on this one too.

I just obtained a tranny that looks just like his. It came out of a 72 nova with a 3 sd on the colomn.
If anyone knows what the gear ratios would be I would greatly appreciate a responce

Thanks Brad

Wat it is

It's a 3spd Saginaw - from the tail shaft, from a Camaro, FBird, or light truck - circa 1968-1972??? Lose it - they suck. They were behind 6cyls for the most part, very light duty, and they like to blow syncs if you try to marry up more than 200Hp to them - not to mention other types of more unseemly detonations. Still - if someone is a resto freak, theywill be looking for one of these. Anyone's guess as to ratios, but it is not geared low - and the value - if you can figure out ebay values, you are way ahead of me! My guess at a junkyard you'd be in the 50-75 range. When you list it - count the output and input shaft splines - they changed over the years, so list them and you will save yourself headaches when a buyer complains it does not fit!
