What's the fifth digit of the VIN? If it is a Z it could be (would have been) an original 4 speed.  They had some 301 4 speeds in 79 as well, those were even more rare.
1979 400 4 speed

Well if its an original 403 car, then no, it couldn't be a factory 4 speed. But someone could've added a new transmission
