Fronty Transmission? I know nothing of these things. How would you mount it to a T engine?

I'm thinkin that its a Chevy trans based on its description. My question is.... How do you shift it, with that stick????

When were the first magnesium castings made?

I would guess somebody made a case to fit a certain race engine to use chevvy gears.
There is no starter notch or hole in the bell housing.
With the short shift lever bent back like that I'd say it was made for a sprint car.

May be Offy related - in Gordon E. White's book Offenhauser, the drawing of a 102 inch Offy Midget engine shows the "in out" gear box terminating in a "Chevrolet ball end".

I have a couple of original Fronty units and they don't look like that--also nothing like that in my literature. Even if it was correct you still need the bell housing and the pan to match--the flywheel and clutch would be a cut down early A multiple disc.

I also think some sprint car trans.
