    A relative got hold of this transmission the other day. Appears to be a 3-speed. Was told it's american, possibly mopar, but I got the impression that was mostly guessing. Anyway, the e-brake on the transmission makes me think it's relatively old, and that in turn made me think someone in here might recognize it, or at least have some information that may be useful for research. So far I've googled the casting numbers, and found absolutely nothing.

    Chrysler did use a hand brake on the transmission but so did others. That is a very old transmission, probably 1920s.

    These guys could tell you the answer, they are the experts at that kind of thing. The AACA Forum

    Looks too light for a truck. Most cars abandoned the hand brake in the middle of the floor by the mid 30s and the floor shift by 1939.

    I was going to suggest International Harvester PU, but didn't really find anything that matched.

    Just now ran across a CL ad for a '47 Dodge WD21 PU for sale.
    This is what the xmsn looks like in it....

    As per Rusty, the OP's does look light for truck use. And this one has a larger although narrower brake drum; suitable for trucks

    There’s a 31 Plymouth trans in the parts for sake that looks similar, but not exactly, Bones

    It seems they could! After a number of suggestions, I got this reply:

    I found pictures of this 1928 Dodge Brothers 128, the interior pic shows the brake lever and gear stick match, and the third picture from the end shows the gearbox from bottom right side, and everything seems to match up!

    So I wasn't far wrong lol. Glad you got that cleared up. Now that you know what it is what are you planning to do with it?

    Well, it isn't mine, I'm just doing the research. I'm guessing the demand for a 90 year old Dodge gearbox isn't very high here in Sweden (and the cost of shipping it anywhere would be a nightmare), but sooner or later someone might need it. Until then, It'll be one of those things that is fun to have because... well, when did you see another one?
