Post In park,, car still moves

Wierd problem. Even when I put my new '35 car in park, it still rolls freely as if it were in neutral.

Chevy 400, Chevy 350 Trany(I think), and a Chrysler 8.75 rear end.

Any Ideas...fixable? I hate to always have to park on level ground.

Thanks
Pc

Sounds like your shift linkage is adjusted incorrectly.

Umm... Somone might have snapped the park pin... I know it is possible since I have come close to doing it (not the proper term but it is the pin setup that holds the car from moving)

It could be a broken parking pawl, If it were my car I would block the tires and get under the car, disconnect the shift linkage and turn the shift shaft clockwise as far as it'll go, get out from under the car and see if it rolls. If it doesn't roll the problem is the external linkage (I doubt it if it drives ok in other gears) if it does roll the problem is the internal linkage. If it's internal just drop the pan and go from there.
