I can not tell by the numbers but looks like the one use with the 61 and early 62 4 speed cars, the call it the chevy pattern with the wide ears.

I won't venture a guess. The pic of the rear surface is far too oblique to be useful. I thought Studebaker was into 7-digit casting numbers by 1961?

WAG? Pre-War.

looks more like a truck 4 or 5 speed.

Looks like an early truck. Probably 30's or 40's.

Perhaps a straight on photo from the transmission end, plus the measurements of the four mounting hole distances and measuring the diameter of the hole would be helpful.

Cars from 47 on had starter on left side, this housing has it on the right. The casting number suggests sometime in the 40's

See if you can find the date code. Mine was on the inside of the bell. At least you can figure it was used around the time it was cast, and help narrow it down.

It's a 189290 Casting number, VERY OLD! Pre War!

Because the lower Right Trans. Mounting BOLT Hole is part of the mounting surface of the other 3, it is not a Chevy Pattern T-10 4 Speed Housing.

As studejohnn asks, locate the casting date code and post that. It will look like two slotted screw heads with a letter and two numbers between them. For 1957 and prior the letter will be first, then two numbers. That will give us the year, month and day the bellhousing was cast. From that we can ascertain the model year.

Dwight, didn't that Date Coding System START in 1947? This is way too Old for that!

If on the other hand that housing Casting mold was carried over ever since way back in 1939 to '47 and on and updated to add the Plug in for the Date, it WILL work can't hurt to look.

I can definitely say that is not the '61-2, I just installed one converting the Avanti from automatic to stick. It looked nothing like that, especially the surface for mounting to the frame.
