Wow. I have an LM1 Vert with the original 3 speed muncie as well. Also, there was just one on ebay (non vert)http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110721582170&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT
but the guy did'nt know anything about LM1's or why it had a 3 speed muncie. I emailed him and gave him some info on what the HQ suffix was.
I also had an olympic gold LM1 a while back with the 3 speed muncie. Have'nt seen so many 3 speed muncies around at one time.....
Here's the boot pre restore in mine, no console boot:
and what it looks like now
Trim Tag (late LM1 X44)
