I've never seen (or been in) a car with a column shift. I've only seen trucks with that kind of manual transmission.
I was in a car (1950-60?) something which only had push buttons for gears. One would just push the button 1,2 3,4 on the dash to shift into that gear.
"three on the tree". Does it mean double-shifting? If not that it's a pussy manual.
I hate driving tractors and straight trucks that I have to double shift. I just grind the gears. I kinda like the sound. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
