Ford’s first RWD 5 speed box was based on the 4 speed Type E and features a cast iron main case with alloy tail housing. This gearbox is the most commonly used for 5 speed conversions on older vehicles, not just for classic Fords but for other classic makes such as MG and Triumph as well as kit cars. A 4wd version of this box was also available and was fitted in early XR4x4 and Granada Mk3 models.
