Greetings from Oregon (and Transmission Question)

I'm new here, but Camaros have been in my family since I was 5 (the first was a '68 coupe, Ermine white with white deluxe interior - I'm looking for it if anyone knows of one!, its the only one I've ever seen in that color combination and was originally from southern California).

I currently have three '68 Camaros, and am curious how I could tell if the big block car was originally an automatic or 4sp (it was built the 4th week of October, 1967, and currently has a 10/03/67 dated M20 in it). I've been told you can tell whether a car was originally an automatic or manual by the transmission tunnel, but I don't know if that's correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Diana

The hole in the tunnel should look like it was stamped out, not cut out. From the bottom of the car, it will have a reinforced ring of metal about an inch wide around the hole.

Does your tranny have a vin #? If it's the same as your car vin, it's original and it would tell you it was a 4 sp car. If not, look on CRG for other clues to 4sp vs. auto.
