what transmission comes in a 1985 f150 that had a inline 6 six from factory

Asked by Mar 06, 2019 at 03:44 PM about the 1985 Ford F-150

Question type: General

i'm going to be buying a 1985 f150 from my future father inlaw this summer
after graduation, he has engine swapped it from an inline 6 to the 302 v8. but
he has told me he thinks it's the c3 transmission in it (he does know it's
stock), which confusses the hell out me; i thought those were for cars not
trucks; and very forum i've seen doesn't even mention the transmission
anyone know what tranny comes with the inline 6?

Back then they used two automatics, one was a C4 and the other was a light duty C6. Look at the pan bolts and check the gasket charts that should tell you want one you have unless someone put a car running gear in it and that is not unheard of.
