Re: how many Notchbacks came with a 5 speed?

I do not believe that information is available. If enough access was given, and time, you could probably figure it out. I'd like to know the answer to that myself, as well as other questions.

Personally, having heard from so many Notchback owners, it appears to me that the 305/5-speed combo is the most rare. Or atleast I rarely hear from them. The majority of owners I've heard from have a 350 hardtop, like myself.

Re: how many Notchbacks came with a 5 speed?

Most GTAs came with the BW 9-bolt unless you upgraded to the optional Dana rear-end. If you've got a Gunmetal T-Top 5-speed Notch, I'd say that is one rare bird you've got. Figuring out how many were produced is going to be a guess at best. What I did was work out options by percentages and narrowed it down using the rarest option each time until I couldn't go any further. It's nice to know, but a guess at best since some of us won't be as lucky to ever get inside Pontiac to really find out and with PHS now we've certainly come up to a brickwall.

The only way one could decipher the info you are after is to have access to each car invoice for that year and go through them individually to seek out the options you are after.... unfortunately that info is not made available to the public.

Besides individual option installations, only generalized breakdowns are possible.
