Not only that to engage the starter you simply depressed the gas feed all the way to the floor. Pretty neat in 55!. Of all the cars I've had these years that's the one I wished I still own.

The switch for the radio on the floor, Ive never seen one , how many years was it available? I remember the "wonder bar" but not the floor switch
I worked at ford ,lincoln, merc dealers in the early 60s and I swear I cant remember I do remember the greasers this is embarrassing!!!!
Ill wake up at 3 am and wake up my wife yelling "hey I remember that switch" LOL
