 Hey guys thanks for all the info. I finally wrestled it out of the poor gremlins. Only good thing left on it is the glass. I'm one of those "anything can be saved" guys. But this poor car doesn't have enough metal left to even make patch panels out of it. 

I don't think this tranny was original to this car. The hole for the shifter looks like some one cut it out with a hammer and a screwdriver.  It's got a really interesting shifter rid set up on the side of it. Never seen one like this before. All the ones ive seen are either top loaders or the ones like the ford T5's. Where they're furthe back on the transmission but the stick is the only external part.

Sorry about the pic being upside down. They always do that here. Doesn't matter how I have it oriented on my computer. But yeah if you guys know what tranny it is let me know. The more knowledge I can soak up the better. And if you happen to know where to get a rebuild kit for that would be even more awesome. Lol thanks in advance

It looks like the automobile T-14 to me.  Not a -T150, but I can't see the cover plate bolts well enough to count them.  1975 would have been a year when either the T-14 or T-150 could have been used maybe.  My 1975 pacer has a T-150 and my 76 Gremlin has a T-14.  Joe

my 1974 Gremlin has the T14. The T 150 was in the later 1974 cars. I have the 1974 tsm supplement saying so.

The T-14 has a 6 bolt side cover,   the T150 has a 8 bolt top cover,  with the front 2 bolts closer together.

With it that dirty, it's impossible to pick out any details in a picture.

What little I can see of the shifter,  it looks like the shifter on the T150 I took out of a 77 Gremlin.

Novak has a good site to ID transmissions from,   but every transmission they show will be as they were installed in a 4WD,   and will look different from the 2WD car installed versions.

The Novak site makes it look like both the T150 and T14 have a top loaded shifter. The one the OP has isn't like that though  - it has external levers.

Like I said the Novak site only has pictures of the transmissions as they would be installed in a 4wds.

The installed both T14s and T150 in cars also. 
I've had one of each,  they looked nothing like the pictures on the Novak site.
The 2WD versions had different output shafts,  and tailhousings.
But a lot of other parts are interchangeable between the 2wd and 4wd versions.

Both had top covers,  just plain steel,  no shifter on the top.
They had side shift levers, which you can see the provision for as castings on the top shifted models.

I've seen a T-14 2WD version,  that someone, ( not the factory ) put a top shifter from a 4WD  on it.

This does have a top cover on it. The shifter Assembly is mounted to the Side of the tail shaft. Ironically i have a four wheel T-150 down at my mother in-laws garage. I pulled it out of a Cj 5 I had. 

Unfortunately(in this case anyhow) I've left for a weeks vacation at Yellowstone National Park.  So I didn't get to count bolts or get better pics. I'll do that as soon as I get back. 

I know the T-150s and it's four speed cousin the T-176 are considered buy the jeep guys to be pretty tough and bullet proof. Is the 2 wheel version the same? I'm rebuilding a 360 to go in the and this 3 speed will be going behind it for now. I'm planning to swap it out later with a tranny that has more gears in it.

I'm not planning on abusing this tranny by doing burn outs but I'm hoping that this isn't going to self destruct behind the 360 under normal driving conditions. Any thoughts?
