With the exception of cars with double clutch transmission, they are all basically the same.

I have driven trucks with transmissions that required you to double clutch but not cars unless the synchronizers were shot. Since the synchronizer was invented in 1919 it's hard to imagine and car from the last 90 years not having them. Trucks didn't have them for durability reasons.

My dad's volkswagen bug didn't have synchro on the 1st gear.

Early cars had no synchromesh on first gear, . . .

1961 introduced full-synchronized four-speed manual transmission

He said it was a pain.

He'd have to slowly move the stick and delicately slip the car into 1st.

Take care & Happy Shooting!

Yes there were some that did not have them in the first gear but that was because you weren't supposed to downshift to a gear that low while moving or you were expected to shift into first when the engine slowed to idle. If you were impatient through, grindddddd.
