As the rest of the car seems original to the December 1964 manufacture spec, what transmission should I expect to have?
    If you don't have the fill tube going into the pan then it sounds like sometime in it's life the transmission was changed, either to an FMX or a C6. There should be a tag on the driver's side of the transmission that tells you what it is. If you drop the pan you should replace the gasket and possibly the filter depending on the type. You will need to know what it is to get the correct parts.

      Often times that tag on the tranny is removed by mechanics when they work on a tranny.. If there is no tag, try and get the stampings off the case and tell us what they are. Here is a picture of what it looks like and a link that might help.
