Original Cragar pedal with a hole drilled through the G
Moon dual setup.
OK, so I have collected enough gas/drum pedals to outfit the entire percession section. I figured it was about time to actually one of them in the car! I had always planned on using the Ghost pedal in the first picture, but when I went to mock it up, it was freaking HUGE in there! So, back to the stash of pedals. I have several of the Ludwig "Speed King" pedals, but they didn't quite fit or look right either. Then I found this really old "Ludwig" pedal, and it was just the right size. Plus, it already came with the holes in it from the factory, so it matched the steering wheel and the shifter perfectly. I'm sure that there is some drum geek out there banging his head on the keyboard right now, but too bad! What do you think? I know...carpet is on the list of things to do.
Looks good to me!
Here's the one I'm putting in my '35 - it's a Ludwig "New Speed Pedal" made from 1936-1950.
Looks good! How did you attached it over your other pedal?
Ha! I have one like that, too!
The one that I used is slightly older, from the 1920's I believe. Where you have a two piece pedal with a "hinge" to pivot, mine is a one piece design with "ears" on the back allowing it to pivot, like a see-saw. I drilled all the way through the existing pedal, and ran a long cotter pin all the way through both "ears".
The allusive and highly overrated barn door gas pedal. HRP
...but was the barn built pre-'63?
Goes good with the light weight ventilated floor.
I NEED to find one of these!
Haven't seen one of these before...any ideas? Tried to buy it on ebay.
These are all really cool. Thanks for posting these photos.
I have some more pedals to add. 3 were gifts and the others were swap meet buys in the $5-$15 range.
First is this Glenwood marine pedal....
Another marine pedal, this time from New Zealand. East Coast Bays Marine......
This is a weird one, just a smooth rectangle....
Someones high school project. Not a great pedal but a lot of character with the Wilson High, 61 scribed in the back.
For $5 this Kenworth pedal can join the collection....
I have no idea what the original application for this one was...
Here is a really nice little pedal I picked up a while ago at the CHRR swap meet. It is a little bit bigger than a dimmer switch pedal and high quality, I was told it was made for running those scaled down engines. I have a secret plan for it.
Don't keep us hanging any longer...what's the secret plan?
These are really cool. I never knew that there were so many different makes. I've thought about looking for a set that match left to right and then use them for floorboards on my Harley.
Moon has them.
Not quite as impressive as some collections !! But

I see this, scroll through the whole thread thinking "Sweet! I've got that rectangular moon pedal, and no one else does." Then the very last post...
Well, actually I suppose mine's a bit different.
Here is a hydraulic set up from New Zealand don't know if it's native or not?
Looks like your M & S hi power?
It's from a river jet boat of unkown age?
I have the slave cyl and once it gets new seals,
it's going in the 36.
Kev,,it's about time to admit you have a problem! HRP
I don't have a problem, I'm a little worried about everybody else though.
37hotrod....Secret plan cannot be revealed yet due to procrastination.
There's a pair of those drum pedals for 99 cents on eBay..... Just sayin'.....
No bids yet either..........
Hell Kev, that's no secret! I have stuff that I haven't even gotten around to putting off yet!
I saw these at a yard sale, 3 for ten bucks so I guess they can join the collection.
Here are some cool pedals seen at the CHHR.....
Wow! That 1st one is so light, if you threw it in the air it wouldn't come down.
