Didn't know they made those.....I bet that light Gremlin would flat out boogie.
I stuck a used 401 from a 1971 AMC Matador in my 1969 AMX for a couple years, until I finished rebuilding the original 390. I ended up tapping the head bolt threads to 1/2" in the 390 block to use the 401 's "dog-leg" port heads.
It was a tire fryer.

They made a few of them dealer option not from the factory. Easy to do V8 block is the same from 290 to 401's

Yes, yes we are.

I do remember one car had the starter switch under the foot feed pedal. 40s or early 50s Buick ?

Shift to neutral and floor it.
I had a 60 Buick with the starter hooked up to the gas paddle. You also didn't need a key. Just turn the ignition on worked like a Harley . Only time you used the key was to lock out the ignition

I could be wrong, but I don't remember any automatics with floor starter buttons. Looks like a foot operated parking brake on the left instead of the pull type "emergency brake" also.

Floor dimmers and bench seats were great for the courting years.
Alot of cars had automatic and floor starters
