How many 1978 Monte Carlo's had 4-speed manual transmissions?
There were only about 75 of the optional 4 speed manual transmission that left the factory which now are extremely rare. The standard 3 speed I'm not sure. But I do know this was the last year the Chevy Monte Carlo offered the manual transmission due to extreme low buyer interest. So point being there aren't many of them.
Thank you so much! My hubby got one on a trade with the original factory 4-speed. He is a Chevrolet guy and had never seen one. It's not in great shape, but he's glad he has it. :)
I have one for sale gary 519 550 2969
Chev produced 1,719 4 speed (Saginaw iron housing) manual Montes in78. I bought one new and still own it. Most I’ve seen are pretty rough.
I got a rough one.
Needs lots of work.
Have you found your build sheet ? Check back seat springs. Yours looks similarly equipped to mine. 305 4 speed with T-top, no air. Just curious.
Also, if your not already be sure to join FB 3rd generation (78-80) group. There are 1/2 dozen or so 4speed ‘78 members in the group. I have all my original drivetrain (complete 305, Saginaw, shifter and all) set aside, though installed crate GM performance 350 along with Super T-10.
