    I've never seen one with my own eyes, but my buddy claims he has, and there are photos of it somewhere, but a Cutlass diesel with a manual transmission. Now THAT'S a unicorn!

    When you say 260, I'm assuming you mean the 4.3 diesel? Wow. Super-rare! (See "unicorn" in my last post!) :)

    the olds 260 gas engine was produced from '76 to '82. and yes you could get a 5spd behind them, i have a '78 and a '79.

    the olds 260 diesel was a one hit wonder, only produced in '79. a friend had one back in the '80s, went through 3 crank shafts, broken.
    and yes a 5spd was available. i don't know the production figures, but ultra unicorn.

    Probably ultra rare because it'd be like driving a tractor.
