What trans in a 1974 C-10 chevy truck?

Can anyone tell me what auto trans would be in a stock 1974 C-10 longbed pickup with a 350 engine. This pickup is a stock truck, so has never been changed. Its a 1/2 ton. Thanks.

Since you are going to the effort and expense of a new transmission, why not go with a 700r4 so you get an overdrive?

What trans

I have a guy who is going to sell me his truck with a new engine in it, but i was not sure about the trans. He is hurting for money due to a divorce. Trucks in real nice shape, and he said he will take $800.00 cash for it. Had the engine put in new here in town so i know who did the work. I cant drive anymore, but my brother and my wife can drive me around, its even got new dual exhaust that sounds great. Good deal or not?.

Around here, a '75 Chevy truck in "work truck" condition will bring $800 easy.

Heck a used 73-74 grille is about $150 at some junkyards,No one makes a repo for some reason. I lucked out and got one on eBay for $0.99 + shipping one time redid it and put it back in the box untill I get ready to use it.

What trans

I got the truck, but when we hit the foot feed to pass another car it wont kick down to passing gear. All i can find is a vacuum hose going to the trans. Is this the only thing that controls the kick down. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Ther should be a Detent cable that connects to the Carb then down to the right/passenger side of trans by the dipstick tube.
