It definitely looks original, but there is no mention in the shop manual of it, and that crazy long-winded manual mentions freakin' EVERYTHING!
Take another look in the '60 shop manual in the transmission section - it should have a photo showing a hand-held gauge hooked up to the Schrader valve. Ford had a pressure gauge kit for dealers to check the transmission, but I don't remember if it was for fluid pressure or vacuum draw, and I'm too lazy right now to dig out the manual to see what it says.
