    I just have never seen one of these before. No 1L or 2L, just L.
    It came out of a 1970 dummy light gauge cluster. 70-72 you could get a Powerglide with the 250 & 307 motors.

    Yes, the Powerglide was a very popular tranny in the 60s and early 70s. In the 60s, it was the most common automatic in Chevys with the 327 and even used behind some 396 engines.
    It was also a great tranny that had few problems.

    Where do you think the word prndl came from? You notice it wasn't spelled prndl1l2.

    Never seen one before, either. Pretty cool. I know the PG was available back then. My 71 has one now, but it was originally a manual tranny car and will be again.

    I parted a 70 307 powerglide car in the 80's had column shift with tilt wheel,no one wanted the column,ended up giving it to a local guy who did column repair to get it out of the garage.Wifeys 67 RS had powerglide originally,remember the distinct growl the pump made,got rid of it when a nitwit at cruise in asked me if it had a geardrive because of the noise-Slip/n/slide with powerglide we used to say!Later Steve!!
