The MT75 is a rear wheel drive gearbox made by the Ford.
It has five speeds and reverse. It replaced the Type 9 box. It has an all alloy casing with integral bellhousing. It was the first production gearbox to have a synchromesh on reverse (so reverse can be selected at up to 25 mph).
Used in the Sierra and Granada, it came in various flavours for each engine and was used in two wheel drive and four wheel drive versions (four wheel drive in the 4x4 Sapphire Cosworth and XR4x4)
Due to its light alloy case and robust internals, this gearbox proved a popular choice with Ford who continued to produce the MT75 in front wheel drive form (MTX75) for models such as the Mondeo, Escort MK5 RS2000, Focus and other popular front wheel drive models.
