The Vulcan electric gear shift system, a solenoid-driven transmission in VHF shift device for standard gearbox, which was introduced in the summer of 1913. One of the first automakers to offer it was the Haynes Automobile Company of Kokomo, Indiana.

Other makes, such as S.C.V. and Norwalk Underslung Six, manufactured in Martinsburg, WV by the Norwalk Motor Car Company (19111922 ). This company made the system available on their products as an option, of which approximately 25 of those cars were so equipped.

Vulcan Electric Shift Company was located in Philadelphia, PA and was eventually bought out by Cutler-Hammer. The model year 1914 was the only year that Norwalk used this system.

When the 1958 Edsel launched in the late summer of 1957, the Edsel became the first and only Ford division to launch an electro-mechanical push-button transmission system, which it trademarked as Teletouch.

Chris on the site I was on it said the same, but it did mention the Haynes Auto.

Hi,
Well that wasn't very hard after you started looking now was it?
Chris I think had it first.
Rich
PS I participated in the beginning of this thread, and there is nothing in the rules about the questioner giving up anything because the other players didn't feel like looking up the information/answer.

If that means its my turn then here is a question that I have been sitting on for four weeks now. If its not my turn then I can wait but here is the question anyway.

Most auto manufactures have gone to the type of rear quater panel construction where the a pillar (door post), rocker panel, roof edge panel and quarter panel are integral and stamped out of one piece of sheet metal. By who, what model, when and where was this type of construction first started and what are the advantages of it over the three piece construction?

This is a very good question, it's commonly called a "uni-side" but I have no idea when the first ones were! God knows I remember seeing one for the first time, I don't remember the car though. I am sure I would be off a few decades if I did remember because the car I was was probably not the first.

But very good question, I am dying to find out what it was. The first I remember for sure are late seventies Hondas.

The A pillar is the windshield, the B pillar the door, the C pillar the back door, and the D pillar is the pillar at the back corner holding the roof on a station wagon type car. So I'm looking for the B pillar on back, correct.

Nope, the A pillar is the "hinge pillar" while the "b pillar" is the "Center pillar" and C piller is at the back of the rear door,the "D" would be the roof pillar behind that.

The maker of the uniside was the Budd company, after Ford turned them down, on the xt-Bird, they went to AMC in 1962 with the Xr-400 which was just a name change. In 1963 they made the Rambler Classic and Ambassador.
The reason for it was two fold, they could take a standard production model car, and by rearranging high volume parts and create unique assemblies, and produce completely new vehicles with a minimum of new panels and modifications.

Brian I think thats what I said Only I used a station wagon.
The windshield post is part of the A- pillar, The pillars are used to hold up the greenhouse, otherwise called the roof. Up until the early 1970's if the car was a hardtop they didn't call the C-pillar the B-pillar the B-pillar was omitted. In the early 1970s GM started calling out the B-pillar.

How long do we wait to see if we have the right answer, I sure I do, but I 'm wondering why you did not get it, as it was part AMC.
