I could see them being reluctant to negotiate too much as manuals like that are rare around these parts.
Actually, manual transmission cars are rare throughout the US. They usually sell fairly quickly (as the OP discovered), when they come in on trade. These days, most people looking for an MT are not willing to settle for an automatic.

Amazingly, the NADA value for a car with MT is normally less than the same car with an AT.
