    You would be surprised. Had a friend that had a 70Z and he really went nuts over the chrome trim around the pedals. Thought it looked classy. Found out that it wasn't available for the floor pedal but was for the hanging. He was going to order the pedal and change it over, but sold the car instead. That's what I mean when I say personalization.

    I spoke with 2 guys at Autofest in Oshawa a few yrs ago and both ordered 70 Z28's the same day and still own them today.
    One was delivered with the floor mounted pedal and the other was not.

    My uncle took his out of his 71 z28 and put a hanging pedal in. He didn’t like vacuuming around it. Thank goodness he kept it but some folks just don’t like them.

    Does the car retain the original carpeting ? The floor boards would all be the same.. I would check to see if the holes were ever drilled for the gas petal.

    With it being a spot that was so prone to rust out and all... it was common to see people push the easy button and put in the hanging pedal.
    They were cheap and plentiful back in the day for sure.
    Post a pic from the underside and get some opinions.
    Most of the guys on this forum have decades of experience with those little details .
    Just post the pic.
