It had a vacuum operated standard clutch that declutched automaically when 
it sensed you touching the shift lever, plus a torque convertor.

Sport-o-matics in 911's were EXTREMELY rare, production numbers range in the 
teens to 100's depending on who you ask. They also built 4 914-6's with 
sport-o-matics, and a handful of 914s.
