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.

  Re: Paralyzed
                  Push Buttons
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.
