Accelerator Pedal 66

Postby Tuco » Sun Apr 26, 2020 11:21 am

Does anyone have a spare accelerator pedal for 66 67 or any year that matches?

One of the ball sockets disintegrated on mine and it’s hard to keep the pedal from flopping.

Anyone have an idea to repair one?

I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know if you have one in good shape and how much you want for it.

Thanks.

I'll take to look but it might be a bit as I'm working some LONG hours right now but will be off a stretch mid next week.

Perhaps 66-70 are a direct bolt in. The difference is that 68 up has a standard
GM 1242101 electric kickdown switch mounted on it. Using that with a switch
pitch controller allows getting rid of that mechanical mess above the engine,
while gaining better response. good luck, Bruce Roe

Thanks Bruce.

I bought one of your controllers and made a bracket for the kick down switch.

I can’t wait to finish the car and take her for a test drive.

I can't wait, either!

You need to post a full report.

I have a spare pedal from a 1967 parts car that I recently bought. Anyone needing any other parts? Contact me offline.
