Motor Life, April 1961 has an article on a 300G stick coupe. the pictures show the shifter to the left of the console. I’ve also seen a 300G coupe with a factory stick shift back in the ‘80s at a local show.. I’m told they are difficult to drive, no syncro in first, and the clutch pedal was heavy. The article states that the idle speed was at 1100 RPM, and the writer had an issue with it.
