The "straight :;ic!;." as the manual gear shift is called in thr industry, is being driven into obsolescence by constant improvements in automatic transmissions. Dodge, for example, reported 97.8 per cent of th« 1959 model cars it sold this year have been equipped ivith automatic transmissions. Because Dodge is a middle priced car, that figure is higher than the average for all car sales, but Ford, in a pamphlet distributed to its customers, reported 69 per cent of sales of all makes of cars in 1958 were cars equipped with automatic transmissions. And the figure for 1959 model sales is probably higher than that. Points Out Advantages Ford, in pointing out the advantages ol buying a car equipped with automatic transmission, estimated it cost the average motorist about 530 a year for the added convenience and safety. The auto company figured it this way:, An autpmatic transmission on a Ford three years ago cost 5190 extra. After three years of service, it was worth an extra' 5100 In trade in value. In other words, it cost the driver $30 for each year he drove the car. When the automatic .shift was first popularized — it was introduced in 1906 but didn't become popular until 1940 — acid tongued n't shift manually had no businessj driving a car. | They pointed out the automatic j shift sacrificed economy and pow-i er and «as subject to frequent— and costly—repair bills. Automatic Shift Improved But the automatic transmission has been improved so much since then that Ford listed lack of repair hills as one of its advantages over the "straight stick. And Ford claimed even expert drivers would have difficulty St., Iccting better shift points than the automatic transmissions of today.! a factor in gasoline economy. Cars with automatic transmissions pull away from stops as rapidlv — or 1 more so—than cars with the straight sticks, Ford said. Police Chief Ingram Dies At Ranger Texas I RANGER. Tex.
