Hitman? True WS6/W72 car?

Ok well Im now after a different car and need some help, it seems the more I study the more confusing all this gets!

I decided to send for information from the Pontiac Historic Services to verify some details. 1978 400 4SPD.

My question is this, if the dealer invoice lists the option codes as W72  6.6.               Litre T/A (400) 4BBL V8 suggested retail 75.00 invoice amount 58.50 and lists an additional code of WS6 Trans Am Performance Package suggested retail 251.00 invoice amount 195.78
Why wouldnt the invoice show auto or manual transmission?

Do these option codes show any potential value to this car as collectible?
I did read the new page by John Witzke and it seemed to confuse me even more  :lol:

The sheet will not list the 4 speed because that was the standard option.  You had to pay more for the automatic... at least that is from my understanding.  Also, the PHS doesn't list ALL of the options for that car, it seems like thye just did a "pick and choose" which ones they listed.
The option codes that you listed, the important ones that add value is the W72, C60, AU3, A31, and WS6.  The other ones are nice, but don't neccissarily add value.

TAluvr, please let me know in what way did my page confused you.  The 1978 model year was a bit confusing with two plants, incomplete production numbers, etc.  

With a ship date of 6-16-78 I would assume it was a 4-speed car as late May 1978 would have been towards the end of W72 automatic production.  In the very beginning of the 1978 model year, W72 included WS6 however by Oct 1977 W72 could be ordered without WS6.  

For the first part of 1978 W72 could be ordered with 4-speed or automatic at no extra charge.
