The Chryslers came out with the push buttons on the dash just left of the steering wheel in 1956 I think.

I remember the early Chevys that had the letters P,D,R etc. on a plastic tab mounted on the steering shaft that you lined up with the shift column for the mode you wanted.

And didn't the early automatics have the R at the end of the row instead of after the P like now?

Yep - OC and I had a discussion about these two styles recently -I mistakenly called my Lancers 3 bars, but they were 4 bars.

He posted some pics of them.
