NV4500 should be fairly easy to find now since its been in use since the late 80's I believe. Should be TONS of SM465's outta 73-87 4stick GM trucks. SM420's would be the rarest of the bunch cause I believe you need to find a pre-73 truck for a SM420 - someone will correct me on the years of the SM420 cause thats just a guess.

No idea about phord and chrysler tranny's, although I imagine NP435's are fairly common.

NV3500s are kinda common too. might not be quite so common here in michigan as most of the 1/2 ton trucks you see on the road are autos..especially the 96+ version. but i know they are around. many in indiana if it helps
