  1. If you are talking about the 2 levers, one is a hand brake, the other is the shift lever. Note the lack of floor shifter on the car :D

  2. Thanks. Never would have known about a hand brake in that position. Interesting. Seems odd place for shift too. Do you think? I guess that’s why things moved in later models.

  3. It was odd, and probably the reason for relocation. Unlike a lot of manual shifters, instead of a pattern, it worked more like an automatic with a clutch, sans the ‘park’ position. It is a very interesting car and a joy to drive. I wish I owned one, but putting it on the truck after a 6 mile ‘shakedown’ for the gentleman who didn’t want to sell it was still fun.
    By the way, in case you should have the thrill of getting behind the (HUGE) steering wheel of one of these beasts, to start the supercharger, you put your foot to the floor, let out a smidge, then floor it again. Instant whiplash!

  4. I got $5 bucks that says Leno bids this bad boy into his garage.
