Well, 1 is correct. And 2 is sort of...a 5 speed manual was was standard
with all models.
"The RPO L69, rated at 190 hp, could only be ordered with the IROC package
and only with a manual transmission. It was discontinued during the model
year." (from the Camaro White Book)
Thanks for the info.
I feel the need to expand on it a bit.
The '85 IROC (LB9, 305 TPI) could only be (originally) purchased with that
sad (constantly shifting out of overdrive) 700R-4 automatic transmission.
My brother owns one (a yellow hardtop '85 IROC, that is).
A '85 left-footed 5-speed TPI would've been a real (overtorquing) trip,
I don't know for sure but I can tell you I had an 85' Z-28 with a 5 speed
that had the HO 305. It was the last of the carburated models. The car was
NOT an IROC!!
I do not remember how I knew it was the HO 305 but I think the VIN or the
emission sticker inside the hood gave me a clue.
