Now for something less than pretty. Note the shift pattern. The big hole in the dash is "radiant" heating.

Shift pattern flipped, interesting.  Did this vehicle manufacturer have their own transmission?  Generally assumed on my part that utility vehicles used parts already in production for cost avoidance.  Thanks for posting

more than likely the shift linkage they had to use made the reverse shift pattern required.

I posted the "economy" version above - here's the Deluxe for comparison.  Not bad but a little too "busy" for my taste - I like 'em more spartan.

The transmission was made by Cotta. They flipped the pattern figuring that 2nd and 3rd were the most frequent gears used and therefore should be closets to the driver.

 

Here is a view of the transmission.

and at the other end the differential and brake (the only brake....)
