hi from south west of france

hey guys,my name's laurent,i live in the south west of france

i own a '82 Z/28 E since 2011,which was assembled in switzerland and imported to france in the early 90's
i swapped the 305 LG4/TH200 metric combo for a '69 350 L48/TH350

one month ago,the tranny went out of third gear,which means it needs to be rebuilt
but i'm tired of doing this (second time in 5 years),so i plan to convert her to manual transmission

my problem is that i can't find any Tremec T5Z world class in my country

this is my baby,please help me get her back on the roads

I had no idea that thirdgens were also assembled in Switzerland. Is that accurate?

Re: hi from south west of france

All I could glean from the web was some 60s Camaros built there, with the last GM car produced there in 1975. I wonder if they prepped imported 80’s Z’s?

Re: hi from south west of france

An L or an N in the VIN might shed some light on build location.

The N suggests Norwood Ohio plant. 10195 indicates it was relativey early in the production run for that year.

C is the model year 1982. H is the 305 4 barrel engine.
