They had a push button tranny shifter in the middle of the steering wheel. I believe 58-61?

What sixties car had a radio that was wired to a simple hot wire instead of thru the ignition switch? When you exited the car you had to turn off the radio after turning off the motor.

Now mind you, I only know of one, but I am sure there are others I don't know about. If you are going to come up with one I am not familiar with I can't give it to you. This is a very common car still made today. I am pretty certain it was wired this way up into the mid seventies.

Ask it in the paint forum, you will get a lot more info. If you search Alsa chrome Alsa Corp | The World's Most Exotic Paints and Finishes chrome you will get a few threads. I have only seen it in action once at a dealer open house and it was darn neat.

Yep, that hit me when we were talking about bugs on my hub cap question. It was so damn odd, I drove them often as my dad sold them and it always thru me.

It's your floor BB.
