It was loaded with standard equipment including leather bucket seats, center console with tachometer3 #fn3 and floor shifter for the Hydra-matic transmission, and was the first U.S. full-sized production car to feature an automatic transmission with a console-mounted floor shifter, brushed aluminum side panels and power steering, brakes, windows and driver's seat.
