when I lived on Vashon Island (mid-60s) I had a 59 T-bird coupe with 3/tree. Red with red/white interior. Clunkiest linkage ever.... Years ago, I looked at a 65 Stingray at an acquaintances place (he's a classic Packard nut). Coupe, 250hp 327, radio delete, knockoffs, side pipes, and a 3spd tranny (on the floor, of course). Pretty weird combo in my mind - I passed on it.
