1967 Saab 95

The pre-1967 Saab 95 was equipped with three-cylinder two-stroke engine that had the lovable quirk of stalling out when headed downhill. The workaround was a small handle on the dash that activated a "freewheeling" mode, disengaging the driveline to prevent stalling until things started looking up again. For at least a few reasons, the two-stroke saw limited application to the automobile, and the 95 was eventually fitted with Ford Taunus V4 also used in the Saab 96 and Sonett, and the German Ford Taunus.
