You are correct...carry on.
Manual 4-speed Transmissions
M20 was the generic RPO for a 4-speed transmission.
For lower performance applications (L6, 307, 327, and L65 350), the Saginaw 4-speed was utilized. It used a cast iron case. For higher performance applications (LM1 350, SS350, big blocks, and Z28) the Muncie 4-speed was used. It used an aluminum case and different gear ratios from the Saginaw 4-speed.

Ironically, most of the rear fold down seat cars I've seen are built in LA. Seems the higher optioned cars came from there, rather than Ohio.

My '67 came from LA and is highly optioned with the L48 SS 350, Z87 Deluxe interior and Z23 interior accent group, D55 console, Z22 rs group, speed minder, wood look wheel AND rear fold down seat...

Front bench with headrest option is the most rare.


On a first gen Camaro with a 4 speed trans. How do you know if it was originally a Saginaw or Muncie ??

I'm gone for the day to our State Fair, so hash it out...

MARTINSR Ok, let's stick with 67-69 Camaro.

What is the super rare seat option? I have seen one car with it, and it was in a wrecking yard! I bought it and sold it in Hemmings as I remember for a few good bucks!

On the bumper brackets, the '67 mount solid to the bumper while the '68's have a large hole and rubber bushing to allow the bumper tip movement.

Too Many Projects I'm not aware of a side bracket difference. The center bracket on a '68 has a hole for a rubber stop to hold the license plate straight...

I got no questions and I'm off to bed...
