    Are you talking about the 70 Z floor mounted pedal or are you talking about something different ?

    Jax - the throttle cable and throttle rod mount on the firewall are interchangeable between the standard hanging pedal and the 70/71 Z28 floor mounted set up. The throttle rod is unique and very different between the two and you are best off to find an original Z28 throttle rod and floor support bracket or a reproduction version to make it look and operate correctly.

    If your car still has the original floor boards, there are two factory "dimples" under the carpet that locate the two 1/4 holes for the bracket/ball studs. OPGI sells an excellent reproduction of the floor mounted gas pedal...search for 1967 gas pedal...that is correct in all details to the 70-71 gas pedal.

    Hope this helps.

    Occasionally, original components come up for sale on eBay, Craigslist and this site or you can purchase the individual components or a complete kit through my site www.2ndgenz.com.
