You can order a report from MartiAuto works. It's expensive ($200+) but it will tell you exactly what the car left the factory with, how many were produced, all the options it was equipped with and so on. Just an interesting tid-bit of information and a good bonus if you decide to sell later on down the road.

Here is their website www.martiauto.com

The base transmission for Torinos equipped with the 302 cu. in. V-8 was a fully synchronized 3 speed with column shift. A wide ratio 4/speed with Hurst floor mounted shifter was available ONLY with the 4-BBL!!!
