With the '65, your transmission has a small dot, then a big dot, then L. Unlike later transmissions, to work properly, your car needs to be in the "big (green) dot" position. Small dot will start in 2nd gear, and shift to 3rd normally. It is useful for snow and ice, but not for normal driving. The big green dot position starts in 1st, and shifts automatically between gears, all the way to 3rd. L keeps your car in 1st gear.


Hopefully, the "problem" is just that you're trying to use the slot just below N (little dot), and that's making your shifting seem odd!

The Ford-O-Matic was a cumbersome, frustrating piece of technology. It started in second gear when placed in “Drive” and then shifted to third. Drivers had to manually shift into low at the “L” position and use it as a first gear. Drivers had a tendency to forget to manually shift out of low to Drive, often putting a strain on the transmission and shortening its life. The Cruise-O-Matic arrived in 1958 and solved that problem. The Cruise-O-Matic featured a sprag, which offered another “D” or Drive position and marked with a green dot. The new automatic still featured a Low position, but the sprag allowed the transmission to shift automatically from low to second to third. This green dot gear pattern remained until 1967, when Ford replaced it with the now-common 1-2-D pattern for three-speeds.

I'D RATHER GO SLOW THAN NOT GO AT ALL

Bui, what position is the shifter in, while you're driving? P R N o O L ? It should be in the "O" position. If you're driving in the "o", that's your problem.
