Is that a frog in my car?

I've had this sound in my car since I got it. 87 NA. It's progressively gotten louder. Like a frog croaking. Or chirping. Or squeaking.

When it's warm outside you can barely hear it. When the car is warmed up there is no sound at all. When you press in the clutch pedal the sound goes away. See video attached.

It sounds like it's between the shifter and the clutch. Is this a bearing in the torque tube going bad or something in the clutch itself? Clutch was replaced by PO and shifts fine. Is this something that will blow up or is it safe to drive until spring?

sounds like a pilot bearing to me.
if it were a torque tube bearing the noise would continue if the car were in motion+in gear, clutch or not.

Wow that's a pretty good impression of some exotic creature. Sounds like those things from Jurassic Park. The sound they make running invisibly in the tall grass just before they surround and eviscerate you.
