From thi Lokar Gas Pedal Install Junkyard parts are fine unless they try to kill you. The gas pedal assembly we've been using in the CC/Rambler was scalped from an automatic-equipped '83 Concord wagon in a wrecking yard south of L.A. more than five years ago. A lot of things have changed in that time. Most notably, the car is a lot faster, like 5 or 6 seconds at the dragstrip. We also installed clutch pedals and a Richmond five-speed manual transmission, moving the position of the gas pedal high up on the firewall. When one of our test drivers got his boot hooked under the stop pedal as he went from gas to brake, the decision was made. The junk must go. The Rambler is old enough that it had a floor-mounted gas pedal with me-chanical linkage instead of the firewall-mounted style that uses a cable. As we pondered how to make a standard pedal assembly stretch 18 inches to the hole in the firewall, someone mentioned that street rodders also have this problem. The solution was a floor-mounted pedal from Lokar. It works killer.

Note that the top of the pedal is angled to the right, while the base is still flat on the floor. Use a piece of tape to mark the pedal's position before you drill the holes for the mounting bracket.
