Which transmission does it have?

I can't seem to find it now that I'm looking (naturally), but IIRC someone there had mentioned you could sometimes tell which Allison a bus had based on it's shifter. Well, here goes... So this is a shorty we're looking at with a 444. It's a 99 with 175k, so I'm kinda leary.

I'd found 6 shorties last month with DT466, but never could get a reply back from the auction house as to what transmission they had. Kicking myself for not
taking the chance. You don't see DT466 (particularly in '94 - 96) in a shorty
very often

in 99 we know its not a 2000 series as those werent release till mid year 2000, it could be an MD3060 if it has a display digit screen on the shifter (pushbutton or T handle with a display).. being a 444 shorty it "COULD" have an MT643 but most likely an AT545, it can also be a stick shift (5 speed spicer was somewhat common on a 444E)


if the VIN is on the sale listing you can call the IH dealer and ask them what transmission is in it..
