IIRC, it is a Borg Warner type 10. Very similar to Ford O Matic and auto trans used in AMC cars.

I believe the Stude Avanti "POWERSHIFT" unit is known in the trade as a Borg Warner "MODEL 8".....

The model 10 is the larger Lincoln unit.

Thanks guys. 10 or 8 ? Maybe it says on the case ?

Your trans is known as a Borg Warner model 8 to folks in the transmission rebuilding business.

Trick is to find the right shop that has the expertise to work on it

PS....some of your transmissions internal parts are special heavy duty..You need to be careful the shop you choose to do the rebuild doesn't use 'standard' Ford passenger car internal parts...They will fit, but won't perform the same.
