You are mostly right - I am not too sure of the early cast iron torqueflites but there is a few mistakes in there for the aluminum ones. In 1962 they changed the amount the rear crank flange sticks out from the block, so you will have to use a 1962 or earlier style torque converter to have the proper spacing. In 1965 they changed to standard U-joints for the driveshaft. In 1966 they did away with the push button system, leaving 1965 as the last year to retain it. None of these tranmissions have part throttle kickdown.
