Why would an old auto (XR 302) have drive and 2nd Tbar positions backwards?

The XR i checked out the other day had this funny quirk, they guy said that when in drive only the first two gears would be going, but when the Tbar is put into the 2nd gear position it used all three gears...???

Console alignment(too far forward/backward), shifter not adjusted correctly?

That is an early 65 mustang c4 known as a "GREENDOT" C4.The idea of the 2nd gear start was to help in poor traction instances.They had a special shifter with different detents to match the trans.If it's an issue you can swap in a 67-69 valvebody which will give you the 1-2-D pattern.
