AMC Twin Stick.. cool shifter set, but in a 4 door?


the Twin Stick was more than just a sales gimmick to win over the hearts of domesticated males who were looking for a family car that was fun, but that could also keep the misses happy. It was in reality about offering 5 forward gears for improved mileage, although we hear it was also a hoot to row through the gears. To create 5 gears, AMC took their three-speed transmission and added overdrive for 2nd and 3rd. When driving, the driver would shift from 1st to second like normal, but then could engage 2nd’s overdrive with the In/Out selector lever. Once the driver was ready for 3rd, they disengaged overdrive and then selected 3rd on the primary shifter. Once up to cruising speed they could select 3rd’s overdrive gear in the same fashion as the previous gear.
