1958 Jetaway Casting Numbers Questions

I recently pulled the engine and the transmission out of my 58 Super 88.

Im unsure if this is the original and numbers matching tranny and if it has been out for a rebuild once.

The shifting was like you would expect from an old jetaway.
1-2 gear barely noticable, 2-3 neck salpping bump, 3-4 unnoticeable.
I had no chance trying to tune the throttle valve linkage before so im not shure if that could soften the 2-3 shift.

Is there anybody out there who can answer the following questions:
see pictures attatched

The small riveted number plate says its a 58 transmission. Im aware that everybody can change this plate easily. What does the casting number on the other side of the housing mean? Is it really a 58?

Which color the trannys were painted by factory? Were they painted at all? Is it possible that the dark green is original paint? If not which color its supposed to be?
Is this an indicator for a previous rebuild?

Does the numbers on the engine block say ist a 58? Because it starts with a 57?
The punched engine number on the right head matches the engine number printed in the owners guide.

Many many questions

looking forward to your answers
