The Muncie 4 speed was a floor shift. All column shifts were 3 speeds and were standard equipment on the car. You are correct that most of these cars had cowl tags designating them as V/8's whether they were or not. Does your VIN indicate V/8 or six (six would be 311)? If it was originally a six, there was no Muncie 4 speed shift option available.Is the muncie 4 speed a column or floor shift???
The car was setup for a column shift and had no hole in the floor board for a shifter.
I was reading that the cowl tags are incorrect as far as stating that cars were V8's when in fact the VIN stated they were six cylinders. Could the cowl tags have the wrong options as well?
