     Folks, can we change the title of this thread to
 something more
     related to whatever is being discussed?  I foolishly
 keep opening
     messages expecting to find something related to
 push-button shifters
     like I have in my '62 - 65 mopars because the thread
 title is
     "Paralysed Push Buttons.  Now it's about
 "where did you get your
     windshield", "tell me more about your
 windshield" and "I don't like
     the new shift controls".  Sorry is this makes me
 seem like a
     crochety old fart, but I guess I AM a crochety old
 fart.  Thanks...

         I got it
             several years ago and had a hard time finding
 one.  Since
             then someone has started re-popping them as I
 have seen them
             on Ebay.  The 62 & 63 were the same,
 64's were different
             because of the different cowl design.  I could
 only find two
             at the time, one clear, in Tenn. and one tinted,
 in
             Minneapolis.  I bought the tinted
 one.
         When I got
             mine it cost me $300 + $100 shipping and $100 to
 have it
             installed by Kryger glass in Omaha with no
 guarantee if they
             broke it since they did not provide it.

 get your

 or darker

               Even with the finicky
 adjustment you gotta
                 love these pushbuttons.  I took my 63 to a
 glass shop to
                 have a new windshield installed I was going
 to leave it
                 for the day.  I pulled it in to the service
 bay and
                 asked if anyone new how to operate a
 pushbutton
                 transmission so they could move it when they
 were done.
                  None of the guys working there were more
 than 35 - 40
                 years old and they all just kind of looked
 at each
                 other.  So I started to explain and the
 mgr. said
                 "that's OK we'll just leave it
 here till you come back".
                  Loved it.

                     I'm looking for
 opinions.
                       I got my Fury about a year ago
 and it came to
                         me in desperate need of a
 transmission rebuild.
                         (727 ) . Getting it rebuilt was one
 of my first
                         efforts. I had it done by a local
 shop who
                         seemed fairly competent and honest.
 Most of the
                         issues they had were from just not
 being
                         familiar with the old torqueflite,
 but they
                         managed. 
                       The car is a very original, 383
 4bbl, all
                         stock. I discovered early on that
 someone had
                         Jimmied up the carb (original AFB)
  so the 4
                         barrel wouldn't open. I gently
 tried to get all
                         that back in shape, and I also found
 that the
                         throttle cable was moved to not
 allow Wide Open
                         Throttle. SO I fixed that.Now, when
 I push the
                         loud pedal she really squirts!!
 Now.... for the
                         push buttons. Only Reverse, Neutral
 and Drive
                         work. I have been under the car and
 played with
                         the adjustment on the cable. I
 actually got it
                         where nothing would work. We went in
 small
                         increments all the way from end to
 end settling
                         back where we started (about mid
 way). Still no
                         function from first or second
 button. They will
                         depress part way and eject whatever
 button is
                         pushed in, but won't push in all
 the way or stay
                         in. I have not pulled the cable all
 the way out
                         of the case yet as I don't have
 a lift, but it
                         seems to be jamming at the push
 button
                         mechanism. Maybe another attempt to
 keep someone
                         from Hot Rodding like the carb and
 throttle
                         cable?? Any suggestions? It may be a
 while
                         before I can try any fixes, I'm
 a big old guy
                         and can't get under the dash
 without pulling the
                         seat, so I would like a plan first.
 Thanks in
                         advance for your input.
