Did you read all of this http://natomessageboard.com/Forum1/HTML/013656.html
Allegedly the manual trans TC accounted for about 5% of total Tbird production but I have never seen that proven.

Pete,

That figure does seems a little low at first but it might not be too far off if you look at the overall picture.
If the published figures from the T-Bird book are correct, Turbo Coupe production accounted for 14.67% of the total amount.
So even if the number of Turbo Coupes built over the 6 year life span averaged out to a 50/50 split, the total number of manual cars would be 7.3% of the total.

Just some food for thought. [Image: smile.gif]
