New Stick Is E for Easy

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
November 11, 1961


The "E-Stick" transmission, a $59.50 option on the Rambler American, combines the economy and control of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic, American Motors Corporation says.

Engine oil pressure and intake manifold vacuum combine to perform the function of clutch operation in the E-Stick transmission. Engine oil pressure applies the clutch in response to engine speed to give a smooth start.

The driver simply operates the clutch lever to engage the gears, but doesn't have or need a clutch pedal. It doesn't creep, and it will not stall, the company said.
