Standard 3 spd for '52 Chevy pickup

I have a '52 Chevy pickup with a 292 I6 for which I'm trying to locate a decent transmission. I put out and ad and got an answer from someone saying they had a 3pd with OD from a 64 Impala. The numbers provided were 3345122 g1455. Can anybody help me identify this transmission so I know what I'm getting? Thank you very much in advance for any help provided.

-Greg

While I do not claim to be very knowledgeable about the AD series pickups ( like yours ) ... all of the ones I have seen have a enclosed driveshaft. The 64 Impala doe not have that ... so unless your pickup has already been converted over to a open driveline setup ... I do not believe the Impala transmission will work.

I believe I would contact Patricks Antique Cars

I am replacing the whole drive train. From the 292 to a 10 bolt rear-end. I am just trying to make sure that this 3spd is what I'm looking for. Thank you for the reply and for the link.

Your 292 uses all the Common transmissions found in the Chevies of the sixties. That trans will bolt up and so will a Muncie Four speed and a zillion other transmissions as far as I know. But I do know your 292 uses the common bellhousing found in all Chevy big and small block motors (Outside of the W motor I think).

I'm looking for a 3pd with O/D so I can keep the 3 on the tree. I just don't know by the numbers I was given (in my original post) if that transmission is what I'm looking for (SM319).

this could have been a Muncie 3spd with the drum-style synchros. LONG gone my friend. A saginaw will fit, aqs will most warners and even Muncie 4spds. I will caution you that saginaws are portly with their iron cases. Also, watch the spline count on the input and output splines to help with your adaptability.
Also be mindful of the bellhousing you need to use. Im no truck expert, I do know that I had a customer who put one of our ultra-wide ratio 4spds behind his 250ci and he needed a very specific bellhousing to make the transition easy. I'm not sure if this effects you or not, but it is something to make note of

I know we are not answering your question in reference to those numbers, but here is some additional information.

You shouldn't have (m)any problems making it fit. But, as autogear stated, check the size of your bellhousing where the input bearing cover fits. Chevy had two different sizes; one for trucks and one for cars. You may need a different bellhousing is you have the larger holed truck bell. You can make a truck tranny fit an auto bellhousing by having the bearing cover turned down. There are also companies out there that sell a spacer to fit a auto tranny in a truck bellhousing. Couple of options anyway.

Also consider that if that is a 1965 unit, then it is a non-synchronized. I think the synchronized units were made from '65-'69. (Someone back me up on this...) The non-synchro units don't have a crossmember mount either.

My final guidance is to make sure the solenoid is included. I have an overdrive unit here at the house and have wasted too much money trying to find a solenoid that fits. I'm sure I could get it rebuilt if it didn't work, just can't find one that fits.

Here are some pictures. The smaller unit is the 66-69. The longer is from the older.

Thank you for all of the replies. It does help quite a bit with giving me things to look at. I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger since they only want $75 for the tranny. BTW the 292 has a 350SBC bell housing on it which, as far as I know, should bolt right up to this particular transmission if it is in fact an SM319.

For $75, I'd buy it too. If the solenoid is working, it might be worth $75 alone!

Will you post some pics if you get it?
