The last of the 6-Speed manual PSDs?
Earlier this year, I felt extremely lucky to find one of the very few 2010 PSDs with a 6-speed manual. I happened upon the truck when I was browsing Woodhouse Ford's online inventory...I'm fortunate to live about 30 mins away from the "biggest Ford dealer in the world." (according to them) Well, I too had thought that the manual transmission wasn't available in a 2010 but sure enough the salesman told me that they had two of them in stock...he explained that the transmissions were "leftover" from previous model years and that Ford was just building them out until they were gone. With Woodhouse being so big, I guess Ford just sends them whatever they need. The salesman did say that there had never been a way for them to order a 2010 model with a manual. So I felt lucky to get what I think was one of the last ones built. Incidentally, after telling my father about what I had found, he purchased the other manual that Woodhouse had. At the time of his purchase (June), he had all the local dealers search the Ford inventory and found that there were only about 5 2010s out there in inventory (West of Nebraska) with the 6-speed.
So I'm curious just how many 2010s with the 6-speed there are out there. How many of you have one and how did you find it?
On a side note, I just can't believe Ford eliminated the manual....a sad day.
