i have recently purchased this EA Falcon S-Pac sedan 1988 for $152.50

i clearly brought it for the t5 but was wondering if there was a way to tell if the car itself is a factory manual, this picture might help

Image

i am a tad unsure because of a few things like this (photo taking from under brake booster near extractors

Image

in the add the seller mentioned

This vehicle was my daily driver up untill about twelve months ago when it just decided to stop on me, and I just haven't been

bothered to find out whats wrong or spend any money on it, So I thought it might be of some use to someone

It has four 60 to 70 % tread tyres on it which are Pos-A-Traction 215 65R 14 inch

It had a new reconditioned T5 gearbox put in it about four to six months before it stoped which cost about $2000

( I have a reciept somewhere here for it).There is some small spots of rust on the body but nothing too major

The stero was taken out for my new car but the speakers are still there..............

i eventually hope to put the manual gear box in my ED, but before thats done dad and i are going to see if we can get the EA running
