What is different about a 4 speed FC transmission Vs a car? Some vendors advertise a truck transmission and a car transmission.

In early '61, FC trans had a 4.26:1 first gear vs. car's 3.65 first gear

In 62-3, car and FC trans had the same gear ratios

In 64-5, FC trans has a 3.65 first gear where cars had 3.20 first gear

Also, most FC trans have no provision to use a back up light switch.
