If this SS has a 4 speed Manual box (Munci) chances are that it ha a 350!! A few did reach our shores!!
Would be interesting to know what happened to production records when GM left in the mid 80's....

Owner mentioned 5 liter = 308 Holden motor. 350 SS's were mostly 2-speed Powerglide not sure if there were 4-speed 350's, if so maybe not with Muncie's either. Could be wrong, seen auto 350's years ago but not a factory manual.

The 350 with 4 speed Muncie is unique to OZ! I have their specs somewhere!
