Ok, I had to google it, but at least NOW I remember. They went to four square headlamps over and under style from the round ones.

Hi,
I went outside & checked the neighbors 83 truck, against some pictures of an 82, & the difference that I see is,
the turn signals moved from in the bumper, to in the grill.

Without googling, I'll guess 1939 Oldsmobile.

Model T had a planetary gearset with a wrap around clutch much like any AT and shifted by foot action that in my mind constitutes an automatic transmission. But even the Duryea had, I believe an in/out crash box and chains.

Hi,
I was thinking full automatic, Oldsmobile is correct, with the hydromatic, closely followed by chrysler, but chrysler's weren't full automatics.

Next question:

What American car maker was the first to offer a tilting and telescoping steering column, and in what year?
