    I know it falls outside the date range that's posted but it is a 40 Plymouth with a 265 Chrysler in it after some Massaging

    Long floor shift lever was used in hot rods in the fifties. The best or toughest transmission was the Cadillac/LaSalle box but it was heavy and slow shifting. If you tried to shift too fast it would grind and miss the shift. A long shift lever with a heavy knob at the top acted as a pendulum and slowed the shift down just enough that you could slam shift it and it would go in every time. You didn't grab it at the top but in the middle to shift.
