Help identify this transmission

My late father left quite a bit behind when he passed, and while we're fairly certain this comes from a mid-50s era application, I'd like to verify with some outside help. The various casting numbers are R10F-1A Q 11; in a rectangular box are the numbers 5-26; W.G. DIV. 56R; a number 5 in a circle; and AF-7006- in a rectangular box

That is a Ford 3-speed transmission with a Borg Warner electric overdrive and it appears to be from a ‘54–‘56 Ford truck.

Looks like a 6-cyl block pattern?

Yes it is so it would be correct for a 53-56 ford f100 with the 215 in 53 and the 223 in 54-56 with the bell housing pictured

Thanks, everyone. I'm trying to help my Mom sell off the surplus items left behind after my Dad passed. Appreciate all the help.

Y'all are missing an important detail.

What truck had a flange on the extension housing used with a rear mount (rubber insulator)?

IMO: This O/D trans is from a car, since cars use a single rear mount. Bolts to the flange, then to the cross member.

Upper pic: Truck R/L upper/lower rear rubber insulators. Where is the flange? No see um.

Bill, as I recall from previous discussions about OD in these trucks, there was a "supplementary support" for the tailshaft of the OD trucks. I can't find that thread or the support in my books.
