    Good for a laugh. Not sure I'd put them in a hot rod though.

    They would look great in a 61 Falcon wagon with a surfboard strapped on top.

    Those are what you put on at shows or when you are parked so people think they are cool. Then you stow them to drive. Deform the curve of taste.
     
  9. I think they (gas pedal) are most fitting on a late 60's era resto ... especially a surf wagon, but toss the dimmer pedal. Its lame.
     
  10. OK for Hippie Vans and VW's, Back in the 60's I had the gas pedal,,in fact I think it's still in the top of my tool box. HRP
     
  11. I actually used to run a barefoot or surfer gas peddle as that were called in about one of everything.

    I don't know when they became popular I bought my first one used in about '68 or '69.


    Sam,
    There actually used to be a car around a town I lived in once that had clutch and brake peddles as well as dimmer and gas all of them bare foot.

    If you are going to run the peddles you need to get the surfer feet decal to run in the back window, we used to get two sets, cut one on two and run it on the bottom and the other toes down between the bottom feet and call them happy feet.

  12. If you run that pedal then you must wear fringed bellbottoms and sandals with the tire tread sole to go with it.

    We cast a bunch of those in metal shop in junior high...Still got mine, hanging on the wall in the garage. Late 60's early 70's lots of guys had them on their high school cruisers around here.

    And,start every sentence with "dude". Probably cool for the street late 60's and seventies and good for surf wagons. But, if you like 'em, put them in!

    Hell Yea ! I had those in about every car I had for years. Okay, admit, had both of those in the 55 Chevy wagon. Traded in a weak moment. Three years later when I bought it back my pedals were gone !:( Whaaa !


    [​IMG] Yes, these right here ! My only problem was the clips on the back kept coming off the pedals and got hung up in my bell bottoms!

    It's traditional, what more do you want? I have a o.g. dimmer foot that I am using on my 51 AD just for kicks.
