So what do you think of this?
That’s what I came to post. That stuff, including the stitch on the steering wheel is a dead ringer for my old Lincoln Versailles.
was there such a thing as a manual Versailles?
parking brake in my volare looks almost the same.
No, but there definitely were manual Granadas.
Judging by that door panel, I’m thinking Pontiac
The vertical pleats in the door panel look very late ’80s Oldsmobile to me?
Perhaps a ‘sportier’ trim level, maybe one with the ‘Quad Four’ which I do think could be mated to a stick? Also noted the leather wrapped wheel which was once a ‘rare’ feature, sort of like the sunroof’s unicorn factor on that Eighty-Eight Brougham from a few days ago…
Will be interesting to figure this one out!
PS: This is my first post here! Been lurking for a while and just love the knowledge and points of interest for the weird, wonderful and woefully forgotten cars 🙂
Those pedals have me thinking AMC something…Gremlin X perhaps?
Yes AMC for sure.
I think it looks like some sort of GM model. Not Ford, shape of pedals is wrong.
While I don’t remember the car in the photo, I do remember when more cars were available with manual shifting transmission as an option, and you had to press down on the third pedal in order to shift gears. I miss that.
Yes, It is good to see a MANual tranny. In the last 24 hours I have seen two almost brand new Caddys with the 6 speed MANual. One on a used car lot and another that ran at the “Flashlight Drags” at an airport about 40 miles from home here in Western Pa.
It has to be some variety of Matador.
I’m going with GM.
Only car I’m still aware of with four pedals is the manual transmission Dodge Challenger.
I want to clarify that I don’t think THIS is a new Challenger, only that among new cars, the Challenger still has this setup.
Cadillac cimarron? although I think the pedals are too from something earlier so I don’t know
Its a Trofeo that someone has turned into a stick.
The parking brake and hood handle say GM all the way. I’m thinking Olds Tornado or maybe Mid eightys Cutlass.
I haven’t driven a car with a manual shifting transmission since 2003.
Late 80’s Olds Toronado
