The Electric Hand was a column-mounted electro-mechanical shifter located under the rim of the steering wheel in 1935-38 Essex, or Terraplane, and Hudson models. It was advertised as a feature to make driving easier and safer because the driver could shift gears without having to take your hands off of the steering wheel. The Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit manufactured the Terraplane between 1932 and 1938.
