I have never seen an 80s Tbird with both a stickshift and a V8. I’ve seen the stickshift, but not with a V8.
Vinnie’s is far from stock (as is mine — wink)
The stick only came with the turbo coup, which was not a v8. I used to have an 87 tbird, it was a baby blue, wish I still had it. The transmission went out at 190,000 and it just wasn’t worth fixing.
