yes but no 350cid. super rare to find a manual at all really. tripple tree, four on the floor, but I have never seen a five... although there is hearsay that a few yenko's escaped the malibu plant with the overdrive.

Thanks for the reply, overdrive huh? That should be worth a few! Anyhoo, great car to drive with the 350, especially living on the coast where I get to just climb over all the tourists!

I had a 1981 Malibu 3 speed on the floor. GM Canada produced 25,500 Malibu sedans special order of the Iraqi government in 1981, but the order was canceled. 12500 Malibu these were sold at auction at very low prices (6800.00$). 13,000 were made ​​in Iraq.
