On second thought, that was info from the engine numbers only, so maybe Joel can help again.

Cars with standard transmissions had crossmembers that were welded to the frame, at least until the last years of the Sharks. Automatic equipped cars had bolt-in crossmembers. It would be next to impossible to remove/replace and auto trans with the crossmember welded in, so they had to have the bolt-in crossmembers.
If your "new" '70 has the original frame, and it has a welded crossmember, then it was originally a 4 speed car....you're good on that.

numbers matching 4 speed.
It's a mess and 1970 Convertible 4 speed.
Thanks Joel at lest its a real four speed car. Have not had time to jack it up and do a inspection on it. But one thing my 81 has a manual and it has the bolt on crossmember which lead me to believe that it was a auto.
