Yes, a Ford T-10 is a Borg Warner. It is a good trans and is probably very much a restorers wish item if they have a 62-64 Ford performance car.

I would do a Google search under T-10 for parts suppliers and rebuilders. Both Ford and GM used T-10's so parts should be readily available. I believe Richmond is an after market company that supplies performance trans's.?? GM had Super T-10, maybe a Richmond??
