“Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem.”
I had a 1964 Rambler Classic with the 6cyl and three on the tree and I sure miss that car, fun and economic and spacious car.
My Uncle had one when I was a kid and he would shift it without using the clutch. I don't mean by playing the gas to align the engine speed to the next gear speed I mean he would just put it into the next gear. I think it had some kind of hydraulic clutch in addition to a standard clutch.
