I must say, these numbers really already reflect other data about production numbers per chassis.
Forward to the next 50 posts.

Did you simply bump into it, or did you specifically look for a manual?

For me, priority was mechanically sound and a good interior as spare parts can be an issue in this part. If I'd found an auto in similar condition I'd have bought that no doubt. But to answer your question, I used to prefer manuals cause they give you more control, but now I feel I've started inclining more towards autos

Would the number till now show the column shift 280SEL (0) is the rarest one around, followed by he 350SEL column shifter (1)?
Maybe this was to be expected considering both cars are already built in the lowest numbers.
Must be sweet to own a 280SEL Column shifter, haha!

Still, the goal was to find out what the ratios are when it comes to all transmission types. Onwards to 100..

Looks like column shift get discussed every few years around here.
