So i pretty much feel like an idiot asking this but ive been trying to figure it out for a while, so ill put my pride aside. What tranny comes stock in a 1958 Mercury Medalist with a 312 y-block V8. The easy thing to do would be to look at the manual, but i dont have it. I looked online and it says its the Merc-o-Matic. The thing about that is that its not an automatic. Its a three speed column shift. Just bought the car and am still trying to figure it out so please, bear with me.
