I'm pretty sure it's just an old word for what we call an auto these days. There are two main types, either manual or auto. Auto uses a cyclic gear train and fluid transmission. Manual uses a friction clutch and standard gears, (manual = the driver must select the gears)

See Wikipedia article on "Fluid Drive": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluid_Drive, especially the sections about semi-automatic M5/M6 transmissions - Gyro-Matic (Dodge).
