Auto Park?

I remember reading about an option in the early 50's (I think)<BR>Called Auto park or something like that.<BR>It was a continental kit the lowered to the ground so the back of the car could go sideways. Does anyone have any information if it was ever produced?

I've seen classic photos of one on a Nash or Mercury from the early 50s.<BR> The way it worked an operating wheel desended from the continental cover and contacted the ground. The back end was jacked up on that wheel and the rear of the car swung into a place. The way it worked is you would enter the parking space at a 45 degree angle and then the gizmo would swing the rear of the car into line with the curb.
