'64 and '65 lever-shifted Mopar automatics are controlled by two cables (one shift, one park), just like '64 and earlier pushbutton units. They attach to the transmission the same, whether there's a lever or a set of buttons and a park slider on the other end. There is an internal difference between button- and lever-shifted cable-operated Torqueflites: the manual valve for lever-shifted units has a second Neutral position on the other side of Reverse, so the manual valve positions are N-R-N-D-2-1. The button-shift units have only the one Neutral position since the park slider engages the Neutral button, so the manual valve positions are R-N-D-2-1. In both cases, the park lock is separate. The rod-shift transmission's first year was '66.
