    \"Rare\" find at the \'yard today

    First time I've ever seen one, an '82 4wd truck with the light duty manual transmission, floor shifted.

    Very odd looking, bench seat, with a "pseudo console". The NP208 shifter was integral with the housing for the tranny shifter. Basically GM took an NP208 shifter housing, made it wider to accept the boot for the manual transmission lever. The "console" is right next to the bench, and the trans/t-case shifter levers are side by side, instead of front/back and staggered. Just thought I'd share, that has to be the rarest thing I've yet to see factory on one of these trucks.

    Why insist on counting when the ring gear has the tooth counts stamped in?
