Did the Pontiac Grand Am GT come in manual transmission?

I’m assuming that the Pontiac Grand Am had some manual options, since it’s such an old vehicle, but what about the GT trim level?

The Pontiac Grand Am is a true classic, dating all the way back to 1973! The GT trim was not available until 1992, however, and it featured new wheels, smoother, yet larger cladding, and more standard equipment. This trim level was persistent—GT coupes were the last Grand Am model available for public sale, through 2005. Over those years, however, the GT was only offered with automatic transmission.
Of course, lower trim levels of the Pontiac Grand Am were available with a Muncie-sourced Getrag-designed 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive—at least for the mid-90s model years when the GT was produced—so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a manual option if you shop around. Keep in mind, however, that these lower trims won’t come with all the bells and whistles standardly included on a GT.
For 1999, all the Grand Ams featured a 4-speed automatic transmission, but a manual option returned a year later. Try to keep this in mind when shopping around!
