1961 Chrysler Newport Station Wagon - whats it worth? in General Discussion Posted August 14 When Chrysler Corp. we’re selling cars with the push button gear selector all manual shift cars came with a factory 3 speed floor shift on the floor. In the fall of 1964, I rode in a 1963 2 door Chrysler with the 3 speed floor shift. He was a salesman who drove about 45,000 highway miles yearly. It had been a special order and the kid lost his job & couldn’t get a loan. The dealer was hung with It and made a really good price offer. About a year later, a math professor bought a black 1965 4 door with a manual floor shift.
