I'm not sure what vehicle it was Thunderhead, but it was an automatic I know for sure and it was in the late 70s when it happened. Turn the key on, but the transmission in to gear and started pushing it.....got it up to a pretty good speed, may 35, 40 or so and it started. That's all I know, couldn't tell you what kind of car or transmission, but it started and off he went. Wish I could be more help.
Late 50's very early 60's mopar automatics had a rear pump and could be push started, not since about 1963 for mopar. Tim

Useless Trivia:
The last American automobile with a rear pump in the transmission was the 1969 Chevrolet Corvair with a Powerglide automatic.

Most people also dont know that they originally used those to dig up grubs...before it was used in fire fighting...

We call the other end an Adze. Like what's on a Halligan. A grub hoe is wider.
