Welcome to the CAC.

My '59 was built on Nov 14, 1958 so we are not far apart. NCRS accepts up to 6 months before the car build date but that is a stretch. Sept or Oct would be good. I'd like it a little tighter than that if possible like last half of October or the first few days of November. I think the change in the side cover casting number happened during 1960 production so you would be wanting to see casting number 3765100 side cover on a trans dated for your car and not the 3772403. It's been awhile since I looked at mine but I could take a look and verify this if you want. I've owned my car for 50 years next week.
