    Anyone know what the Z28 had a floor mounted pedal? I mean why would GM have 2 different parts that did the same function, seems like a bad business decision to do it.

    You would probably need to talk to one of the orignal 1970 GM engineers to get an answer for that. In addition to the Camaro, some of the full size cars used that floor mounted pedal.

    Might be something as simple as the engineers thought it would be easier for heel-toe braking during road racing.

    I post these photos because I have owned this car for almost 30 years, it has the optional 410 gears with code “COO” stamped on the rearend housing unit, the numbers on the engine begin with the letter “V”, twelve bolt, and much more to prove it’s a real Z28 including this build sheet which was located above the gas tank.

    Do they have holes in the floor for the floor mounted pedal?
