John, that isn't the one I was thinking about, being I am a Buick nut, I was thinking 1964 Buick when they got the "TH400" (ST400 in the Buick) ahead of the other lines and from what I understand had to hide the fact it was a three speed.

But it's your floor because it sounds like the same deal and I learned something!

Unfortunately for you I've already spent the grand prize of $495 million on dirty magazines and Jujubes so your left with the grand honor of asking the next question.

Congratulations and ask away!

We all know Smokey Yunick was a legend at tracks like Daytona and Talledega. He had many innovative Chevrolets and dominated superspeedways in the mid 60s. So what car manufacturer did he first find his NASCAR success before Chevrolet?

Response by Richiehd was completely correct - DeSoto, Le Salle, Hudson, Cadillac.


However, there were others as well - Frontenac comes to mind (early 60's Canadian version of Ford Falcon)

AND the Studebakers of the early 60's - a Bord-Warner Auto that only showed L and D in the quadrant. To get a manualy-selected second gear you started in L and then shifted to D, then back to L (My dad had a '64 Commander that did that!)

It had a really stoopid shift quadrant - P, N, D, L, R
