    I'll get a pick if I get it, but yea that's pretty much it except for a windshield visor on this one, and the owner put spoked wheel covers. WTH? I will score some baby moon Chevy hubcaps if I get it.

    The old Army jeeps had the starter button on the floor that you worked with the toe of your right foot so your heel could be on the gas pedal at the same time.

    Exactly, the 56 Jeep I learned a floor shift in had the starter pedal, and yea, I forgot what a contortionist you had to be to feather the fuel while pushing the starter. LOL

    That starter pedal actually engaged the starter to the ring gear and made contact to feed the heavy amperage to the starter motor. One less thing to screw up and with six volt systems it was harder to get things activated.

    You have my sympathies. Some of the most fun cars and trucks to drive were 3 on the tree.

    My first car, that I drove through high school was a 1960 Nash Metropolitan convertible. It was a 3 on the tree with a little Austin A40 4 cyl engine - one of the funnest cars i ever drove.
