Specs at last Wow My 79 is rare :Twist if there is such a thing as a rare 79. :eyerole only 4062 built with a 4spd. I think half the fun is shifting gears but I do wish it was a 5 or 6spd at 100mph old betsy sounds like she needs another gear but I'm fresh out. :hb

4,062 were equiped with the close-rato 4-speed.

There were 53,807 Vettes built for 79.

Of those 4,062 had close ratio 4-speed.

and 41,454 had an automatic trans.

That leaves 8,291 with the wide ratio 4-speed

for a total of 12,353 with 4-speed transmissions.

The wide-ratio 4-speed was standard equipment. If you did not order an optional trans that is what you got. There were two optional transmissions: 1) the close-ratio 4-speed (4,062 sold) and 2) automatic trans (41,454 sold). That leaves 8,291 with the standard equipment wide-ratio 4-speed.
