Post subject:  Park

I am continuing a restoration on a '61 Desoto. I took the transmission out the other day and discovered the emergency brake on the back of the trans. I had never seen one of these before (mainly I have been working on some old GM muscle cars). Did Desoto (Chrysler) want a owner of one of these cars to push the emergency brake down everytime that the car was parked? There is no 'Park' on the push button selectors. Thanks.

Of course you need to put the car in N and use the emergency brake. The advantage, if only small, is that if the car is whacked, pushed, etc. while in N and brake on is that there will be no transmission damage, unlike moving a car in PARK.
