Bet it wouldn't work with an automatic!
I had a '77 Mustang II that the battery died while I was at a coworkers house.
Fortunately he lived on a slight incline.
Gave it a shove, hopped in, rolled downhill and popped the clutch.
Got home and went for a new battery in the wife's car.

Why not just push it? As long as you're not trying to push it uphill, it's not that hard. It didn't look like that car was very heavy.

There must not have been much compression in those cylinders!

Wow.........+1 for trying.
When I was young I had a non-starter. No problem, I lived on a hill.

Actually, now that I think about it, this would be a pretty good solution if you were stuck somewhere by yourself. It would be hard to push and pop the clutch.
