    This is interesting an interesting thread for sure. My 70 Z does not have a floor mounted gas pedal. I always just assumed the previous owner replaced it with the hanging one because he raced the car on the drag strip for a while.

    I bought a new 79 chevy short bed pickup,305 cu inch 2 wd sbc. First time i took it in for severse,would not shilf out of1st till about 40, watched the person working on it win some money and start a lot of talk on the 4 wheel drive springs and the 2wd 400 trbo tranny that was there and should not have been. The finely put a lower rear in it so it would shilf better

    I just came across this thread, i have been wondering why my 70 Nor built Z doesnt have a floor mounted pedal. It has a flooting pedal in it right now and the floors have been cut out where it would have mounted, i got the car with the floors cut out (Maybe it was changed) I just cant see why someone would have cut out the floor mounted pedal and replaced a flooting. The build date is the 3rd week in July....I'll post pics soon.

    I would be sure to put the floor mounted gas pedal set up back in the car. Mike:D

    I like the feel of the floor mounted gas pedal compared to other cars and like the new cars, because you can get the feel of the pedal to the metal :) :) But problem is getting a fitting floor mat. :(
