Re: [Chrysler300] Torqueflite casting number

I'd ask Don Verity .. he explained to me recently that major  internal parts changed including castings 57, to 58 to mid 59 up . I did not know that . Not sure if 300 is a specific case casting -- highly doubt that . Specific assemblies for 300  inside and thus stamped part numbers? 
Later ones are better , but with  later 60, 61 wheel type shift cable needed if starting a car from scratch . Official 57 battery  acid or a better trans? Smile . can get a 57 trans I am sure . Complete with potentially sticky valve body . Parts like valve body go with the years . 
Maybe Don can help you a lot. Make exactly what you want .

Keith,. I think you are requesting the part number stamped on the machined surface of the casting.  300 C received the following  "1854123".        A typical serial number would be a 7 digit.  One of mine is 1158513 another is 1156911.  Of course these special transmissions were often switched with what ever was available when service was required. Any comments would be appreciated.

H Gang,

Someone gave me a casting number I need to look for a year or so ago, and I've misplaced it.

The Torqueflite for a '57 300C is said to have a different casting number from the standard models. As I am looking at old Torqueflites, I would appreciate it if someone can provide this number to me again so I don't end up with the wrong model.
