They don't look the same. Part#'s are also different.
You may have to have yours relined.
FMX Transmission Parts Bands

Alto, Raybestos, Borg Warner etc...

It does look like WIT has one available: Small/Med Case.

Band design is different, check the servo lug shape end that engages into the band

two steel plates against each other is not standard. Some one made and error or they did that to maintain proper clearance. that is what you need to do is setup the clutch pack with proper clearance.

Some of the modern frictions for these vintage trans are different thickness than the OEM parts were. You need to measure and watch how the pack is setup

Looks like there're 3 different Rear Bands which are Case specific.
Small/Med 1955-1981
Small/Med 1951-1955
Large 1955-1972
