Straight six refers to the engine not the trans, specifically an inline six cylinder engine. As the other post said three on the tree is a 3 speed column shift.


You mean "Three on the tree" , which refers to a 3 speed manual transmission with the shifter being on the steering column. The "straight six" refers to an inline six cylinder engine.

one post is good.


Is your truck an auto or a clutch? If its a clutch is a c9. If its an auto its a c6 or c4.
