If the manual transmission came from the factory,

wouldn't it have been on the steering column in 1963?

Especially for a non-sporty, regular model such as this.


I would tend to agree.  Wonder if it is an after market conversion?

Oddly enough, the floor shift is factory installed in the manual transmission Mopars for 1961-1964.  It was the solution to the problem since the automatic had the push buttons.

 

That makes sense.  That's interesting.

So there must be a rarely seen cover plate over 

the push-button area of the dashboard---

There was one similar to this one on E-Bay a couple of years ago but not as nice as this.  I don’t think it ever sold at least while I was watching it.  Something about a Chrysler of that era with a three speed is odd to say the least.  I did see a few Chrysler models in the mid sixties with a big V-8 and a four speed manual.  I think they were both convertables.

As odd as a floor-shifted, three speed manual transmission seems in a Chrysler Newport, it was the base transmission that was standard equipment for the Newport and Sport 300.  Torqueflite was optional at $227.   Notice the original buyer didn't opt for power brakes either, but did get power steering and had aftermarket A/C installed.
