A friend of mine is looking at building a fake Starsky and Hutch car but does not want the three speed auto. Weren't the 72s available with a manual option? Has anyone ever heard of a more modern conversion like a T-5 or T-56?

Sure, I've driven a few '72-'73 4 speeds, in fact my brother had a '72 Torino Gran Sport 4 speed.

You'll have to find the clutch pedal assy from a 72/73 car. After that,all those cars were autos.
