Re: 4spd 78' Malibu
I owned a couple of `78 El Camino's that were factory 4-speeds. One was a GMC Caballero/Diablo with 350/4spd, the other an ElCamino SS with 350/4spd. `78 was the last year you could get a 350/4spd combo, but not available in California. In `79 the largest engine you could get with the 4spd was a 305.
I have some paperwork somewhere that gives some of the production stats.
I found the build sheet for both of those Camino's in the headliner. Be careful pulling the foam board headliner down, they're usually very brittle.
