    Does anyone here know what manual transmissions that was available for this car?
    Mine has a 3-speed automatic but I would love to have a manual transmission instead.
    Since I am renovating the whole car I think I could do this swap at the same time to make it like I want it.

    If it is a Sport or lower (AKA not the Cordoba body) then it could have a manual from the factory. SEs and Daytonas all had automatics standard and manuals not available. But the clutch set up from any 71 and up B-bodies will all work, with a few brackets for the Z-bar welded into place. A center console that'll accept a shifter through it is going to be all on you.
