T-10 bell housing exchange question

I have a 65 midyr, 289 with a t-10 BW trans. It has 6bolts and 157 teeth on flywheel. It has casting number C5DA - 6954-A. I need to replace. previouse owner liked to bottom out. Bellhouse missing bottom bit. Grease and grime into flywheel housing. Since I am needing to rebuild or at least look at bushing on Trans. want to change bellhouse. Local Colorado Mustang Specialist want to know if I want iron or aluminum. Then tell me they only have Aluminum (why ask?. $150. Local junk yard has various bellhouses. Does anyone have exchange info. I am told and a believe any 6 bolt 157 teeth housing will be correct. Am I online with that. Info would help much. Project in about 2 weeks so I need to find correct bellhouse.
Thanks Pike

65 coupe.. just finally getting around to working on it now.

Most of the cast iron bellhousings were on trucks with the larger ring gear. I run the aluminum one on my car with no problems.

Old and in the way.
