Learn how the manual transmission works from this 1936 short film.


The manual transmission is one of the least evolved components in a modern car.

Brand new cars, for example a 2015 model stick shift, has a lot in a common with a 3 speed gearbox, you’d find in a car made 70 years ago.

One of the main reasons why we love these films is that they refresh our memories, even though we already know how a manual trans works, it never hurts to get back to the basics. This film is the production of Jam Handy of course, created to explain us in the simplest way possible, the workings of a manual transmission.
