'63 GMC step-side w/ 3 on the tree is what I learned to drive in. Sold that truck last year and it was sad seeing it go but it needed more work than I was ever going to put into it.

Learned how to drive a standard with a floor shift. Then a buddy's mom got a deal on a brand new '77 Granada with three on the tree, don't recall that one hanging up.

Then shortly after the family bought our 'ranch' I found a '64 Chevy pick up for a ranch truck. I had to show everyone how to shift a three on the tree and untangle it. .

I kept my prying screw driver in the glove box. People had no mercy even back then when your in the middle of an intersection trying to free jammed linkage.

Back in my day, pickups were either 3 on a tree or grandmaw 4-speed. If your battery konked out, you could get going with a shove. The first pickup I remember without a standard was a 1966 GMC.

Summer of 1964, '57 ford Custom 4-door with 272 v8 & 3 on the tree. I was 14 with a Learner's permit Bought it from my Mom for $75.00 with a leaking rear main crankshaft seal that would have cost triple that to repair.
Started my Junior year in high school in September driving it to Auto Shop and it became the 1964/65 Auto Shop Project Car.
First thing replaced was the column shifter. Hurst on the floor.
Good Times . . . . .

My dad had a chevy pickup , 66 or so , If you were not precise , the shifter would jam every time going from first to second,
Pull over and get the screwdriver.

1st truck was a '66 Chevy with a 235 with a 3 on the tree. Not much HP but you could let off the clutch just right and leave rubber for about a block.

I still have it. It’s tore all apart right now. Started doing a frame off rebuild 20 years ago. Then got married and moved in with her and an HOA so that shot those plans all to heck. bang

I need a straight six 170 if anybody has one laying around.

On another note, a buddy had a 1966 Chevrolet Nova SS with a 327/350 and a 3 on the tree. As far as I can tell, it was one of only 69 ever built to that specification.
