Mine was a '62 impala, similar to the one below. It had kinda cool wire wheel hubcaps 3 that matched and one that didn't
It had a 273 with a 2 speed powerglide.
It was a dog.
To make it go, I used to rev it up in neutral, and drop it into gear.
Buggered up the transmission, real good.
The transmission guy was an old school character. He says "You shift gears a lot, don't you?"
Then he says "I won't tell your dad, but maybe you should put a floor shifter, in it. You can play with that, and leave the one on the column alone!"
