If you mean a manual (three on the tree), I don’t know but you could look at the late 1950s sedans and might find one there.

They did have 3 on the tree, I saw a 1958 with it at a C&C recently. Can't recall the model though.

Garage List
BMW 501/502 had a 4spd steering column shift


BMW hasn't made a 3spd since the 1930's
