Hey guys,
Just curious, i have never seen a manual statesman, people musn't want one. Is it possible to convert one?? Fixing the centre console and making it look good would be one of the hardest bits....any answers??
I have always been curious about this...

Cheers fellas ;)

I have seen a few manual VQ statesman and a VS Caprice manual, it is a relativley simple conversion done over a weekend. The centre console you just have a custom insertion made :)

They dont match the rest of the console then, costs about $180 to have a custom one made that looks 110%
