This week, its all the info you’ll probably ever need to put pretty much any kind of manual transmission into your G-Body. We know that some G-Body cars came from the factory with 3-speed, 4-speed, and yes even 5-speed manuals… ONLY from ’78 to ’80, and possibly into ’81. After that it was automatics ONLY.

Here’s the link straight away:

You’ll find lists of parts, with part numbers. Lots of images, (Although some have gone missing over time!) and lots of other data, install tips, and comments from other G-Body stick owners.

I've been in a G-Body in one way or another since they were new. I got my own '79 Cutlass in 1990, and have been a fanatic ever since. In 2005 I started GBodyForum, and now GBodyNation.
