That sure is odd. Mine is 4N189 built 04B and has T10 and points. Anything I had ever heard about the Muncie transmissions was they were no longer installed after January '74
January 1974 is when the memo was released about the trans. change , it was a rolling change. GM wasn't going to scrap a bunch of Muncies because of a memo exactly in January that day.....what they did is use them up till there gone. BTW I am the original owner of my car, its a 2B build and has the M20 MUNCIE trans and this is the same trans that is in the car today.

Thank you. Although my car VIN and engine block VIN match, so it doesn't reveal anything new. CLJ=350 mt (manual trans) z (z28). CMS would add "ce" for "California Emissions" (car wasn't sold new in California)

"CLJ" appears to mean any 350 z28 4sp without California emissions in the 1974 model year, so I wouldn't think my car having a T10 would be much of a unicorn.

Nothing bad or wrong with it at all….I figured there was a few , but never had run across one. I just have always had a interest in 74 car trivia , Just a very interesting time line reference to the engine and transmission changes. Your car answered a question I had wondered for a long time is all. The CLJ Warner exists …! Thank you for your help.

As a ‘74 owner myself I’ve been very interested in the trivia too. Another example is how many Camaros were built after April ‘74? Nasty numbers don’t go beyond that but from anything I’ve read the ‘74s may have been built into early September. Zfools car iirc was built in august.
