So I have this case in my '59 ragtop, and I'm just kind of curious about it's origins. The oil sender is in an unusual location, it's a standard upright T1 case (no hole for the T3 dipstick), and it's single relief.

It has a weird H5xxxxxx number on it that appears possibly to be a 1967 M157 engine code, whatever that is. See here:

Any ideas?

I believe its a '68 case. I have one sitting under my work bench that has the sender in the same location.
