This is what the Chrysler TorqueFlite transmission is

The  Torqueflite was created from the Chrysler Corporation, starting in 1956 with a three speed transmission.

Prior to the Torqueflite was Chrysler's two-Speed Powerflite.

Production of the  Torqueflite was from 1956 to 2007

The first Torqueflight was operated with push-buttons.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) Number

Starting in 1969 the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) was applied to engine blocks and Transmission case's of each vehicle.

The result of the Federal Government Anti-Crime Law. The number can be found on a pad on the driver's side of the case just above the pan rail.

An "R" stamped before the serial number suggested a replacement transmission.
