home brew poncho62 - must be a different urban legend. Like I said I have a friend who bought one of these and still has it. Then again maybe the seller was using your urban legend and changing it to help make his car more interesting and salable.

I have a friend that owns one but he couldn't stand the six so he dropped in a 350/350 combination.
That was in 1981.................they were 6 cyl, 3 sd, air cond.

But they are difficult to find ... even 25 years ago ...

I needed one for a 55 Chevrolet Cameo pickup project and I looked for about 2 or 3 months ... in 1980 or so.

Centerline After doing some research, just because it was an interesting question, I have found evidence that some 72 Chevelles did indeed come with a heavy duty Muncie 3 speed manual....... you learn something every day.

jimfulco There might also have been a heavy-duty Muncie 3-speed in it.

MI2600 The 3-speed trans behind a BBC, and I believe other high performance engines, was the Borg-Warner T-16. They are identifiable by a 9 bolt side cover. They are really difficult to find because most BBC buyers wanted a 4-speed. It took me about 3 years to track one down.

Centerline I'm not a Chevy guy but I don't believe 72 SS Chevelles came with 3 speed manual transmissions. I could be wrong I suppose. The one thing I do know is that they came with the Muncie 4 speeds or TH-350's and TH-400's depending on the engine options.

As to where you might find one new, I don't have a clue. Hope your search is successful though.
