[VIDEO] Chevy Truck Shifts Gears with Light Switches
We’ve seen some pretty strange things on the road in our lifetimes, but the 1979 Chevy C30 dually in the video below can actually change gears with lights switches—and that just might take the cake.
YouTuber, Dan Mann, gives a pretty lengthy but educational discourse about how he swapped out the SM465 manual for a GM 4L80E automatic that he got from his brother-in-law’s truck. He needed to make the change because he has a herniated disk in his back, so the new transmission would be much easier for him.
If you don’t want to sit through Dan’s explanation (which is actually really interesting), you can skip ahead to about 9:30 to see Dan take his C30 onto the road and demonstrate how the transmission—and its light switches—work.
